Strategic Issues for a Design Support Organization: The Swedish Industrial Design Foundation

By Torsten Dahlin, CEO, Swedish Industrial Design Foundation; Lisbeth Svengren, Ph.D., Head of Research and Education, Swedish Industrial Design Foundation

The Swedish Industrial Design Foundation sees itself as a trade and industry -- rather than cultural -- resource. In this role, as Torsten Dahlin and Lisbeth Svengren explain, it defines a modest but clear and well-focused agenda. First, it reaches out to small and medium-size enterprises with a regional program of counseling and design referrals; it nurtures collaboration among designers and inventors. Second, it facilitates design-related research and curriculum development for schools of business and schools of technology.

Keywords: Industrial Design, Design as Strategic Resource, Design Center, Government Policy, Design Awareness
