Design Value

We invite research proposals that examine the value creation perspectives in and through the application of design (thinking) into product, service and business development contexts involving users, organizations, ecosystems and society at large. Our aim is to further develop the current understanding of design as a value creating tool and approach in business, social innovation and society at large.

It is expected that candidates are interested in how to create new products, services and business models that add tangible value (understood in a wide way) through the application of design approaches, tools and thinking. Successful candidates are expected to have completed relevant studies in Design, Innovation Studies, Management, Business Studies, Social and Cultural Studies, Technology Management or similar.
