DAB radio project

To finish my BA degree in product design, I consider making a DAB radio, for home use/portable/beach whatever.

My main concerns are
a) establishing contact with a producer; I live in norway, so no doubt I’ll have to look outside the nations borders. Any suggestions?
b) if the producer provides me with the technology, will my role be reduced to just the styling of a box? any experiences?
c) defining the project: you can put just about anything into digital appliances. When do I stop?

These question are maybe a little loose, but any comments are helpful
