A new report from the Danish Design Centre outlines the new innovation landscape and explores the future role of design.

The innovative landscape is changing. Chances are that design will play a new role in the future, entering into new constellations with other disciplines and making important contributions to innovation, job creation and growth.

The Danish Design Centre has worked to develop a clearer understanding of the role of design in innovation. The new report "New Innovation Actors – Design and Technology in the Interest of Society" is a preliminary study of the future role of design in innovation, the innovative landscape and new innovation actors.

The report is based on visits to 38 organisations and more than 50 interviews in Denmark, Europe, the United States and Japan. Download the report here.
