Onny Eikhaug is a Programme Leader at the Norwegian Design Council, responsible for pioneering the Council's activities in the field of people-centred design and Design for All. She is also responsible for the Council's government funded Innovation for All programme promoting Design for All to business and design as an effective business tool for innovation.
