The Project


Following the established format of the Design Competition project, Regione Lombardia and the Chamber of Commerce of Milan Monza Brianza Lodi in collaboration with the Politecnico di Milano have promoted the new edition of “Design Competition Expo Dubai 2020, Connecting Spaces” and launched a call for project ideas and proposals to be developed by teams of young designers in collaboration with Lombardy's companies interpreting the theme of Expo Dubai 2020 “Connecting minds, Creating the future”.

An international jury, consisting of project partners and prestigious experts, will choose 20 prizewinning project ideas.

An exhibition of the awarded prototype structures will be organized in Italy during various design events and later at the Expo Dubai 2020 in the UAE, from October 2020 to April 2021. In addition, information on companies and designers who worked on the prototypes will be published on the Design Competition website and in promotional material.

INNOVATIVE PROJECTS TO CONNECT PEOPLE, IDEAS AND SPACES

DESIGN COMPETITION EXPO DUBAI 2020

Objectives

The Design Competition Expo Dubai 2020 intends to promote the innovation applied to design, for which Italy, and in particular Lombardy, are known worldwide. Lombardy's companies will obtain the opportunity to open new areas of industrial development, achieve international market outlets and approach the Expo Dubai 2020.

Design Competition also serves as an excellent way for talented young designers to meet and collaborate with manufacturing companies to develop concrete ideas, while the companies can implement innovative processes and products.

Team of designers and company

Joint teams of young designers under the age of 35 and Lombardy’s companies are invited to participate in the competition. The involvement in the team of UAE students under the mentorship of the American University of Sharjah (EAU) will be rewarded.

Regione Lombardia and the Chamber of Commerce of Milan Monza Brianza Lodi will reward the companies of each of the 20 nominated projects with up to € 20.000 to cover the costs incurred for the construction of the prototype.



Opportunities

The winners will be given the opportunity to approach the Expo Dubai 2020 by establishing contacts and partnerships with the UAE market with beneficial effects on their exports.

An exhibition of awarded prototypes will be organized in Italy during various design events and later at the Expo Dubai 2020 in the UAE, from October 2020 to April 2021. In the months before the Exposition, the projects will be shown to the commissioners involved in the construction of the Pavilions of each country.

In addition, information on companies and designers who worked on the prototypes will be published on the Design Competition website and in promotional material.
