Opportunity: Call for Candidates, WORTH project WORTH Project

WORTH Project

22 July 2014

The WORTH project is a joint partnership with London College of Fashion and Institut Francais De La Mode and will encourage partnerships between designers and enterprises across Europe. Inspired by the designer Charles F. Worth – a pioneer of Haute couture, the WORTH project will initiate partnerships between Designers and Enterprises (manufacturers, retailers, craftsmen, technology companies) in fashion, textiles, jewellery, footwear, eyewear, furniture, fur, leather industries, from different EU member states (and other CIP participating countries) to create innovative new products. 

Partners will be supported to develop the products, define their market positioning, exhibit them at trade fairs or exhibitions and organize IP rights management. Coaching and strategic advice will be provided to the partnerships. The Worth project is supported by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Enterprise & Industry and financed under the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP) which aims to encourage the competiveness of European Enterprises.

The second Call for Candidates is now open and to be involved designers need to submit Expression of Interest by July 24th, 2014

The application deadline is August 15th, 2014.
