About the event

Applications are now closed.

Join an immersive programme that will help you connect with young creative talents and established industry partners. Participants will learn about tools and methods for value-driven design; design for impact; transition to the circular economy and exchange of best practices and networks.

The aim is twofold: provide emerging creatives with a boost in their professionalisation and career development and get in contact with industry and research institutions, and to diffuse the Distributed Design way of working within industries, allowing all participants to gain insights into value-driven design and circular transition methods to innovate their practice and business models.
