The ‘Creativity for Local Enterprises’ book includes GIDE’s activities for the 2011/12 academic year. Student projects and articles by professors frame this topic. The project is aimed at the development of an innovation-oriented design culture, which includes regional companies and local public administration. It serves, for example, to advance the transfer of knowledge and technology between academia and the economy in a targeted manner. The project provides support for more intensive networking between the creative sector and economy on different levels. This book has been peer reviewed by academics from the seven schools belonging to GIDE.
