Launch of Circular by Design Challenge

About this event

Following a successful pilot edition in 2020, Luxinnovation and the Luxembourg Creative Industries Cluster are pleased to announce the launch of the second edition of the Circular by Design Challenge. Creatives are invited to compete for a place on this 12-week coaching programme and the opportunity to develop their project idea with one of the Challenge’s industrial partners. Join our launch webinar to learn more.

Climate change, global warming, depletion of essential resources: the need for a more sustainable society is urgent. We are convinced that creativity has a key role to play. The Circular by Design Challenge therefore puts you and your creative mind at the centre of the solution-finding process. Targeting creative entrepreneurs, its objective is to develop new design solutions and innovative business models that are in line with the principles of the circular economy.

The Challenge’s corporate partners are willing to support the implementation of the best ideas that will come out of the coaching programme in five categories:

  • Sustainable Cities
  • Industry 4.0
  • Fashion Design
  • Mobility
  • Nation Branding.

The introduction webinar, hosted by Luxinnovation and the Creative Industries Cluster in cooperation with the Luxembourg Ministry of the Economy, will present the 5 challenges of this edition. Information on how to submit your ideas and potential partnership deals and prizes will also be revealed. Internationally renowned keynote speaker Dr Leyla Acaroglu, founder of Disrupt design, will give a 20-min talk about Circular Economy.
