Designers look into the future to meet people’s needs. Design for Future Needs is a research project that discovered how their methods can help policy makers do the same.

The 2002 project, run for the EC by a group of European design organisations, researched how design techniques for envisioning the future can benefit EC decision-makers’ foresight planning and policy work. It’s aim is to help them respond to emerging issues and trends from environmental pressures to technological change.

The DFFN website now has all the information available from the research.
