Importance of creativity and design to R&D

Seminar and discussion on the importance of creativity and design in business performance, the UK economy and products.

The meeting will begin with a presentation by the chair, followed by a recent DTI paper which sets out in detail the vital importance of creativity and design in driving business performance and the UK economy. The second presentation will review key factors that have to be considered in planning and developing a well designed product, to ensure the benefits and value of a product are fully maximised and utilised by the customer. After the presentations there will be a general discussion led by Professor Clarkson with the audience on the issues raised.
