The project aims to develop creative industries and support talented designers, artists and technologists.
Participants of our project implemented their unique concepts and are presenting them at the international level.

Many of the past creations which are now considered commonplace were bold discoveries at the time. Today, the need for design has grown more than ever. There is a demand for new sources of energy and food, the modern ways for the organization of urban life, the creation of new materials, and waste recycling require contemporary solutions. Polluted water and air, the emergence of new diseases, the loneliness of people in the information flow, the rapid development of digital technologies are difficult but important tasks to tackle for our society.
Our projects are to answer this demand and show a huge potential in the evolution of creativity and design in our countries
