WORTH II Open Call to Strengthen the Competitiveness of Creative SMEs
The WORTH II project aims to strengthen the competitiveness of SMEs in the fashion industries and lifestyle sector, increase their innovation capacities and help them in their transition to climate neutrality and digitalisation.
By the end of WORTH II, a minimum of 200 trans-national partnerships will receive tailored support to create innovative products, services and business models.
Through this open call, WORTH II intends to become Europe’s largest incubator programme for creatives, offering:
- Market-based financial support to develop innovative products, services or business models
- A coaching programme and advisory services tailored to the needs and specificity of different partnerships
- Facilitating market-positioning and professional links between members of partnerships and other key players by organising networking activities and participating in relevant design events and exhibitions.
In particular, the first call of WORTH II is dedicated to the New European Bauhaus (NEB) initiative, which aims to improve the EU’s sustainability and inclusivity.
The deadline for this open call is 2 February 2022.
