The WORTH Partnership Project is funded by the European Commission COSME, the EU Programme for the competitiveness of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs). 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/architecture/interior design, jewellery and accessories. Launched in 2021, WORTH II follows the success of the first edition (2017-2021). 202 transnational partnerships will be selected in three calls for proposals, involving partners from EU27, the UK and COSME countries.
