Preliminary program: www.4d-conference.com/program

4D is an International Conference aimed to discuss the role of Design in developing value for social entities, technological advancement, and business creation and revamping. Modern and nascent economies indeed are adopting design as a competitive lever to embed continuous and discontinuous technology in new product language as to propose new entrepreneurial ventures. Moreover design has become a strategic lever for social entities to run fund-raising, to create new user engaging logic’s, to combine social and economic value.

Specifically 4D conference embraces both perspectives: i) “designing development” where design is the main input to create feasible conditions to enhance social values, to diffuse new technology paradigms and to create new ventures; ii) “developing design” where design is the “output” of the inter-playing of social, economic and technological supporting forces.
