New SDN Chapter In Taiwan

Taiwan has been actively involved in the international design circle in recent years, including the 2011 IDA Congress, World Design Expo and 2016 World Design Capital in Taipei. The growing trend has been also transforming the ‘Made-in-Taiwan’ (MIT) economy into a ‘Design-in-Taiwan’ (DIT) one.

Nowadays, many industrial and academic organisations adopt service design as their core strategy, and there is a large Taiwanese service design community (read more about this in ‘5% Design Action’ in Touchpoint Vol. 6 No. 2, and ‘Service Design Gourmet’ in Touchpoint Vol. 6 No. 3).

The Chapter team members

  • Arthur Yeh from Service Science Society of Taiwan
  • Chen-Fu (Kevin) Yang from Industrial Technology Research Institute
  • Will Wu from BenQ
  • Diane Shen from Business Models Inc.

The team is planning to organise a national conference on 23 October.

The expectations of the Taiwanese SDN Chapter

  • Grow the recognition and practice of service design in Taiwan 
  • Connect to the professional community throughout Asia 
  • Get more people involved in this movement: academics, industry representatives, teachers and students.
