Design Management Academy Conference 2017

Research Perspectives on Creative Intersections

Submission deadline:  November 15, 2016

Design is becoming more strategic, both in the private and in the public sector. There is a wider range of interfacing activities with internal and external clients and collaborators than before and there is also a wider spread of disciplines to productively interact with. New methods and technologies for collaboration and interfacing have come up. China has been the centre of manufacturing for quite some years. Now it has become a leader in the development of internet services and the most important market in the world in many categories. In this new landscape, the roles and responsibilities of designers are changing dramatically, both in Asia and in the rest of the world.

The Design Management Academy invites an international community of scholars to formulate areas of explorations and academic contribution which are outlined by the following 7 meta themes, within the 20 tracks around which the conference is organised.


  1. New Models of Innovation
  2. Product-Service Systems
  3. Policy Making
  4. Intersecting Perspective
  5. Methods
  6. Capabilities
  7. Foundations
