Design for Future Needs
Designers look into the future to meet peopleâ€™s needs. Design for Future Needs is a research project that discovered how their methods can help policy makers do the same.
The 2002 project, run for the EC by a group of European design organisations, researched how design techniques for envisioning the future can benefit EC decision-makersâ€™ foresight planning and policy work. Itâ€™s aim is to help them respond to emerging issues and trends from environmental pressures to technological change.
The DFFN website now has all the information available from the research.
