European House of Design Management
The European House of Design Management is a new Europe-wide design management project aiming to improve knowledge transfer from the private to the public sector. The project will build on successful design management (DM) processes and behaviours within the private and corporate sectors, and will adapt a set of three DM tools to develop design management competency in the public sector.

2) a Design Management toolkit for public bodies will be compiled and distributed;
3) alongside with the DM toolkit a trainer’s module will be developed;
4) the process, developments and results of the project will be described in a publication.
