Open call: Worth Partnership Project

Inspiring innovation through creative connections around Europe. 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.

Launched in 2021, WORTH II follows the success of the first edition (2017-2021). 200 transnational partnerships will be selected in three calls for proposals, involving partners from EU-27, UK and COSME countries.
