Design Factory Global Network (DFGN) is a network of 37 innovation hubs in 25 countries based in universities and research organisations on five continents worldwide. DFGN is on a mission to create change in the world of learning and research through passion-based culture and effective problem-solving. Shared understanding and common ways of working enable Design Factories in the network to collaborate efficiently across cultures, time zones and organisational boundaries fostering radical innovations.
DFGN currently extends to almost all corners of the world with partners in five different continents. All Design Factories are created to drive change in the local context, whether it is hosted by a university or a research institution
DFGN is the activity that takes place in and between the different Design Factories. To find out more, meet the local faces of each platform. DFGN also has a small team in Aalto University, looking after the development of the network.
