Swinburne Leads the Way with Design Thinking & Practices

veski has awarded a submission received from Swinburne University to support a two day conference on Design Thinking and Pracitces.

Design thinking is a topic of major interest in a range of design and related fields, particularly in the global context. Australia has yet to explore fully the consequences of the concept for design education and practice. With the increasing importance of innovation to the national economy, this is a good time to do so.

With support from veski, the Faculty of Design at Swinburne University of Technology is organizing an invitational conference to address the meaning and significance of the design thinking concept for education and practice. Following the conference, the university will host public seminars and develop a book.

The veski award will help Swinburne University to bring outstanding international experts to Victoria, develop community awareness of design thinking, and foster a culture of innovation for design and related fields using design thinking as the vehicle.

The project will highlight the existing excellence of design thinking as exemplified in the Victorian design sector, develop national, international and state networks among peers and colleagues, and emphasize the value of design thinking for design and scientific solutions of sustainable design practice.
