GSA's Design Innovation Studio and Scottish Enterprise are running a free design support workshop in Edinburgh on the 10 May. The event is aimed primarily at technology companies. Further workshops will follow in Glasgow in June (aimed at digital, media & textiles companies) and in other Scottish cities after the summer.

The workshops are led by highly experienced Design Innovation specialists from Glasgow School of Art who will take you through a practical process to help you understand how design can be a strategic and effective tool to boost performance, open new markets, cut costs and reduce risk.

The workshop covers all disciplines of design including, product, packaging and service design. You'll also gain an understanding of how to use design as a strategic tool to boost business performance, and build capacity to scope and manage future design projects.

And if you identify a business issue that could be addressed using design innovation, and you identify a small budget of around £5,000 to do this, you are likely to be able to access two days of one-to-one support to help you develop a design brief.
