DESIGNSCAPES launches an Open Call with the aim of identifying and financially supporting at least 100 European projects until 2020. We are looking for innovative designers and entrepreneurs willing to solve city related challenges. Both existing and completely new ideas and solutions may be submitted!

This Open Call wants to identify and support a number of ideas and projects from people such as entrepreneurs and creative thinkers and highlight the opportunities and challenges for design-enabled innovation in the cities.

Why taking part?

  • You want to positively impact the societal challenges emerging in your city with your innovative solutions
  • You want to take benefit from the non-financial resources made available by the DESIGNSCAPES consortium (e.g. support to the adoption of design, broader communication and dissemination channels, business acceleration services, etc.)
  • Last but not least, as a winner, you want to receive some funding from us

DESIGNSCAPES wants to encourage the uptake and further enhancement of urban design-enabled innovations and we would like to invite anybody who is interested to solve urbanization related challenges, specifically technology thinkers, creative minds, designers and entrepreneurs to submit ideas to improve city life!
