The SEE (Sharing Experiencing Europe) Project, which focuses on developing innovative thinking through design, has released its newest issues: Bulletin Issue 6 and Policy Book 4.
These publications inform how design education can change government policy in Europe. SEE aims to educate a growing audience in Europe and across the globe through its regular bulletins and policy books.

Policy Book 4 examines how innovative ideas in: product and service development, national design systems, and design support for subject matter experts (SMEs), are affected by the role of design. By understanding these systems and the role of design in innovation, successful national programs and policies can be developed. Bulletin Issue 6 goes further in-depth on how policies have changed over the last 3 years:
- Research: How Policies Matter to Design (Dr Qian Sun)
- Interviews: Design Policy and Promotion Map (Estonia, Finland, Italy and South Korea).
- Special Reports: SEE Project’s Policy, Innovation and Design Conference. Dublin’s Bid for World Design Capital 2014.
- Case Studies: Service Design Programme (Wales, UK) and Design and Business Concepts that Merge (Argentina).
The SEE bulletin is the only publication entirely dedicated to exploring matters related to design policies and programs for design support. Since 2008, it has been published by Design Wales, leading partner of the SEE project, and is distributed to over 60 countries.
SEE is a network of 11 European partners exploring how to integrate design into regional and national innovation policies, co-financed by the ERDF / INTERREG IVC. Electronic copies of the most up-to-date bulletin and policy book are available to download at SEE’s official website: www.seeproject.org/publications.
