2019 Final Show – in videos, slides and pictures!

The 2019 Final Show of Design for Government (DfG) showcases new ways that multidisciplinary design can address policy-making and public-service provision!

DfG’19 included 4 highly-committed and talented student teams addressing challenging projects commissioned from within the Finnish government. This year, students have addressed two project briefs: First up at the Final Show were the teams dedicated to “Boosting Consumer Rights for Finnish Business,” a project from the Finnish Competition and Consumer Authority with the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment ; Next were the teams committed to “Empowering Citizens through Artificial Intelligence,” a project from the Ministry of Finance.

Below is documentation of the DfG’19 projects – including videos of the presentations, presentation slides, each team’s final report, as well as pictures of the Final Show.

Welcome and introduction to Design for Government from Professor Ramia Mazé.
