Worth Partnership Project II
Inspiring innovation through creative connections around Europe
Following the success of WORTH (2017-2021), EASME (now EISMEA) launched a new call for tenders, the WORTH Partnership Project II. WORTH Partnership Project is funded by the European Commission under COSME, the EU Programme for the competitiveness of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises. WORTH is the sole European project where designers, SMEs, manufacturers, and tech providers work together to develop innovative, design-oriented business ideas. The project focuses on lifestyle industries, including fashion and textile, footwear, leather and fur, furniture/home decoration/interior design, jewellery and accessories. The project provides companies with an incubation programme to develop new businesses, including:
- 10.000 to 20.000 € in financial support;
- coaching on business strategy and technology development;
- legal advice on intellectual property rights and protection;
- participation in exhibitions;
- networking and professional links.
200 transnational partnerships will be selected in three calls for proposals, involving partners from EU-27, UK and COSME countries.
