Tongji Design Week 2016-“New Challenges”

When we discuss the development of design as a discipline, we should be aware of the current situation. Innovation driven growth and economic transformation and upgrading have become national strategy. In “Made in China 2025”, design and innovation is listed as the key for China’s economic transformation and upgrading. At the same time, Shanghai is under the way to achieve the goal of becoming Science & Technology Innovation Center with global impact. At the social and economic transformational point, there are unprecedented opportunities and challenges in front of design. To contribute to national and regional economic growth, design study has to explore further into the design objects and process, the approach to solve systemic problems and hence brings positive impact on sociotechnical systems and drives innovation.

 

The 2016 Tongji Design Week will take place on October 12th. New Challenges will be explored and discussed during the event. There will be over 20 forums, exhibitions and other activities including the Emerging Practices Conference (EPC).

 

The 2016 Tongji Design Week is organized by the College of Design and Innovation at the Tongji University and co-hosted by the Shanghai Week UNESCO City of Design, the Shanghai Industrial Design Association, and the China Industry Design and Research Institute (Shanghai). Detailed introduction of EPC and other activities are coming soon. Please stay tuned!
