The internationalisation of Finnish Design - Support, impediments and opportunities (English summary)
This study evaluates how public support measures have sought to promote the internationalisation of design in recent years. In addition, the study assesses the challenges that designers encounter when trying to internationalise their professional activities, as well as their related needs for information and financial support. Also, the study clarifies the experiences designers have had with the available support services, as well as the views of designers and other actors in the field of design regarding how these services could be developed. As the actors in the field of design are typically small, the focus of this study is on designers who work alone and small design companies.
