Our Spokes

DESIC partners with 4 spoke institutions

"As I attended DIC WS, I got interested in DIC activities. I understand that it is part of National Project for design education…. I am a member of advisory team for MEXT, Japanese Ministry of Education and in addition to that, Japan is looking for another framework for design education. Starting from local needs and from grassroots is very important. I believe we have to introduce some of your ideas".
