D2i – Design to innovate is a cluster organization focused on design-driven innovation. D2i brings design research and practices to businesses, public authorities and other knowledge-based institutions that are already working with or wish to work with design thinking and design-driven innovation.
Together with D2i, University of Southern Denmark is a partner in the project Growth by Design funded by EU’s regional fund. Within this project, University of Southern Denmark has the lead on two sub-projects in the form of Value Chain Innovation and Reframe the Future. Value Chain Innovation focuses on SME’s value creation, business models and business relationships. Reframe the Future has a focus on how both private and public partners can be brought together to address “wicked problems”, such as digitalization or other changes with great societal impact. In both projects the involved firms are taken through a series of workshops facilitated through the use of design methods and design tools.
