POLI.design member of BEDA

BEDA, the Bureau of European Design Associations, is not-for-profit organization, including 46 members from 28 member states in Europe.

Members can be design promotion centers and other publicly funded organisations that promote design nationally or regionally as well as professional and trade associations for designers from across Europe.

BEDA was founded in 1969 when there was little knowledge and poor awareness of the impact that designers could have in business.

BEDA brought together the professional design associations from across Europe, typically providing signposting to information about the design industry, which was very young at that time. It also helped to promote the case for design in business.
