WORTH Partnership Project

#WorthExhibition @ Milan Design Week 2023


Innovation, sustainability, and a forward-looking perspective are the driving forces behind the winning projects of the latest call from the WORTH Partnership Project, Europe's largest creative incubator funded by the European Union's COSME programme. From April 12th to 18th, these projects will be showcased during the Worth Exhibition, an event organized as part of Milan Design Week, the world's largest annual design show, located at Via Sirtori, 32.

The winning projects encompass a variety of sectors, including fashion, textiles, footwear, leather and fur, furniture/home decoration/interior design, jewellery, and accessories. There were 680 participants in the latest WORTH partnership project call, 123 project proposals and 65 winners, all based on the principles of sustainability, beauty and inclusion.

From the 18th until the 19th of April, we will be hosting a series of on-site workshops and masterclasses as part of the Coaching Programme offered by WORTH.

Workshop Agenda

Networking Activities

The networking activities between the partnerships’ members are taking place at the exhibition venues. A virtual marketplace will be implemented before the exhibition for the partners to feature their businesses’ demands and interests as well as their offers. Interested participants will then have the chance to get in touch with other participants to schedule bilateral meetings on-site. Spontaneous chats will also be triggered through the implementation of a marketplace board where attendees will spot their interests and needs with their respective contact details and schedule availability.

Join us for the aperitivo on 18 April and 21 April at 18:30 h at the venues in Via Sirtori 32, Milan.

On-site IP Helpdesk & Advisory Services

On-site IP helpdesk & advisory services will be made available for participants on 19 and 20 April. Partnerships will be given the opportunity to schedule consultations with the Contractor IP expert and of counsel Ana Maria Stein.
