HUNGARIAN DESIGN AWARD 2017

Following a tradition, an award ceremony will be held also this year to present the best of last year in the Hungarian design scene. The grant that has represented the most prestigious recognition in the profession for almost 40 years, along with the annual award announced by the Minister of National Economy, primarily aims to call market actors’ attention to the competitive potential offered by the creative industry, and to present the outstanding achievements of national innovation to a broader audience. As the notion of design keeps changing and is gathers complexity, the event offers a comprehensive overview of the trends representing the present and projecting the future of the design scene. Similarly to the previous years, the panel awarded products that represent a high added design value, are innovative, competitive, and meet international expectations, in addition to becoming an indispensable part of our everyday environment.

 

DESIGN MANAGEMENT AWARD 2017

The strategic application of design today is proved to increase competitiveness and is regarded by market actors as a profitable investment. The Hungarian Design Council founded the Design Management Award as a means to recognise the organisations that set an example by using the inventory of design and design-minded thinking, which has become an integral part of their operations also at the level of decision-making processes. This recognition may motivate organisations and institutions by showcasing good practices, while offering an exciting glimpse into the secrets of corporate success to those interested. In addition to the four awarded companies, four other organisations that have received certificates of recognition are also presented at the exhibition.


Admission to the award ceremony: on presentation of an invitation.

The term “Industry 4.0” refers to the currently unfolding fourth industrial revolution, which entails the full automation and intelligent control of the entire manufacturing process, i.e., the undoubtedly universal global phenomenon of living in an intersection between the physical and a virtual world. All of these increasingly closely rely on the new modules of global innovation. Supplier value chains, which previously tended to move along “fixed” tracks, take on additional dimensions, while R&D activities, which followed a unilaterally closed course of innovation, suddenly take a more open form, thus facilitating and urging the mechanisms of the sharing economy to inch their ways into the development of certain technological innovations. This takeover facilitates technological platform-based networks to emerge and grow vigorously, creating an advantageous opportunity for new innovative enterprises to enter the scene through successful marketing opportunities for their technical innovations. Having recognised this, the Ministry of National Economy, in cooperation with the National Technological Platform Industry 4.0 established by it, is working on a development strategy for the national economy, with a possibility of added emphasis on the creative industry.

What do all these imply for the creative industry?

Good examples and lessons learnt, points of  connection for the creative industry - topics to be analysed by experts at the closed workshop, and presented at the plenary session to be held in the afternoon. Outlining a number of pilot projects and good practices, the invited experts and the roundtable invitees explore the potential future strategies for the creative industry.
