The main event of the European Design Innovation Initiative in 2012 will be held on September 17 and 18 in Helsinki, World Design Capital in 2012. The report of the European Design Leadership Board “DESIGN FOR GROWTH AND PROSPERITY” will be presented and discussed during the event
The European Design Leadership Board was established in early 2011 by Antonio Tajani, Vice President of the European Commission responsible for Enterprise and Industry. Vice President Tajani invited the Leadership Board to provide recommendations on how to enhance the role of design in innovation policy in Europe at the national, regional or local level and to develop a joint vision, priorities and actions to enable design to become an integral part of innovation policies in Europe, in line with the Innovation Union. Over a period of one year, the European Design Leadership Board held seven meetings and a co-design policy workshop with over fifty key stakeholders from government, industry, academia, the design industries and the public sector.
Taking a broad-based view of design, the Leadership Board identified twenty-one policy recommendations, in six strategic areas for design action:
- European design on the global stage
- Design in Europe’s Innovation system
- Design in Europe’s enterprises
- Design in Europe’s public sector
- Design in Europe’s research system
- Design in Europe’s education system
The twenty-one recommendations will be spelled out during the Summit. All participants will receive a copy of the report “DESIGN FOR GROWTH AND PROSPERITY”
The Summit will be hosted by the City of Helsinki and is expected to start at 16.30 on 17 September and to close at 15.30 on 18 September. The audience is limited to 200 participants and will be completed in the order of registration. REGISTER NOW!

Die Universität Potsdam bietet Hochschulen, Schulen, Forschungseinrichtungen und Verbänden ein Forum zur Diskussion aktueller Anwendungen innovativer Prozesse und neuester Ergebnisse zum Thema E-Learning.
Lehrende und E-Learning-Praktiker und -Entscheider tauschen ihr Wissen über etablierte und geplante Konzepte im Zusammenhang mit dem Student-Life-Cycle aus. Der Schwerpunkt liegt hierbei auf der unmittelbaren Unterstützung von Lehr- und Lernprozessen, auf Präsentation, Aktivierung und Kooperation durch Verwendung von neuen und etablierten Technologien.
Das Symposium greift die erfolgreiche Veranstaltungsreihe auf und führt das Thema „Forschungsdatenmanagement“ aus dem Vorjahr nun zu innovativen Technologien für Lehren und Lernen.
Around the world, school teachers and administrators, scholars and researchers, government officials, and the general public are seeking to improve the quality of education. In recent years, two of the most prominent themes have been: (1) using performance measures to hold school systems, administrators, and teachers accountable for results, and (2) conducting different kinds of evaluations to identify and test promising approaches and programs able to improve student outcomes.
Much can be learned from the efforts already done, and the conference aims to providing the grounds for scholarly dialogue and debate on the methodologies used and the results obtained. The event seeks to bringing together a worldwide audience, including academics and professionals from universities, think tanks, school systems, government agencies, and the private sector, and to offer them the opportunity for networking and discussing how different lessons could be applicable in many countries.

EFMD - CEIBS Conference on Innovative Business in China and Europe (followed by EQUIS, EPAS & DAF seminars)
The development and growth of China over the last 15 years has been remarkable and has had a profound impact on the global economy. However with continued growth comes the challenge of maintaining this in the future. China is looking to shift from being the manufacturing powerhouse of the world to being a centre of innovation and ideas and the 2012 CEIBS-EFMD conference in Beijing (November 29-30) will focus on Innovative Business in China and Europe.
Questions that will be discussed and explored during the conference will include:
- What is the status of innovation in China?
- How innovative are Chinese companies that have gone global?
- What are the Chinese government's innovation policies?
- Which are the implications of innovative business practices on human resources?
- How open are European companies to innovation?
- How can European companies relate to China?
- Does China have the talent available to shift towards an innovation driven economy?
- What does this mean for business schools and companies?
All of these issues are relevant to companies, business schools, faculty and policy makers with an interest in China's and Europe's economic growth and cooperation. A variety of corporate and academic speakers will provide input and lead discussions around innovative business. The conference programme will be based on the expertise of the Centre on China Innovation at CEIBS. The 2012 CEIBS-EFMD conference will take place on the Beijing campus of CEIBS on 29-30 November and will be followed by EFMD introductory accreditation seminars which are highlighted below.
This conference is organised in the framework of the EU-China Business Management Training (BMT) Project, http://www.ceibs.edu/bmt/, funded by the European Union.
Is open education fundamental to a sustainable learning industry or a noble but commercially flawed cause?
Based on research from across the breadth of the learning industry, there are clear indications that the commercial learning industry has not yet fully engaged with open education (OE) or open educational resources (OER). The commercial hesitation to adopt OE is in large part due to a perceived lack of associated new business models. It is also due to the perceptionof OE being a potential threat to existing learning business models. This view neglects the important innovation potential that OE brings to the learning market.
We present evidence that OE is growing quickly – e.g. in the academic world– even though only few industry members are currently supporting it. This creates a potential for market disruption – in similar ways as the music industry has experienced with the rise of Internet filesharing or the software industry with the rise of Open Source. To not proactively engage with open education, its production, use or practices, could present a serious threat to the sustainability of the current learning market.
Fifty years ago, President Kennedy issued a wake-up call to Americans over the Space Race. Today, the publishing and IT industries in western economies need a similar, urgent call to improve western workforces’ skills and renovate their old, outdated educational establishment.
Fabrizio Cardinali, Chair of the European Learning Industry Group and Senior Vice President of Business Development of one of the leading mobile and online learning content management solutions provider, eXact learning solutions, outlines what he calls ‘the Sputnik Effect’ for the contemporary learning industry.
He also suggests lessons that can be learned from the Florentine Renaissance and outlines the forces which combined to create a perfect ’knowledge storm’ in those days. He hopes that a Renaissance 2.0 could hit Europe and help it to compete successfully in global workforce markets and in today’s Knowledge Society.
International conference to close ReAct - re-activating teachers and learners , a transnational European project within the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Union, KA3 (ICT) which brings together a group of european projects to discuss experiences and results centred around the main axes of the work done in the reAct project. These are creativity and autonomy as facilitators of intrinsic motivation, and the challenges involved in integrating new approaches in traditional curricular contexts, which most innovative projects face.
