Network Model

Creating a national Finnish Design Academy collaboration model and forum.

The Finnish Design Academy is a collaboration model and a forum for higher education for design. It aims to create a structure and model for the division of labour and collaboration with business. The purpose is to transfer best practices, strategically develop design competences and find out concrete actions with which to realise the above-mentioned goals.

In the pilot phase, the FDA will organise an annual Spring Forum, as well as a Finnish Design Summer School, in order to spread out the results and develop the work of the academy.
