The paper is divided in three parts. In the first part “Innovation and Growth” the fifty conventions, the theoretical frameworks, the elements and criteria of the built dataset will be introduced supported by the presentation of the most remarkable case studies.

The third part “Collaborative models – contemporary roles for designers” will draw the conclusions, inducted by the work on the dataset, of the role of design and the needs for designer training.
