March 6 - March 7
Date: 6-7 March 2020
Location: Principe Felipe Museum, City of Arts and Sciences. Valencia, Spain
Context: The WORTH Weekend event has become a model format of final evaluation and selection of partnerships for EU-funded initiatives. What makes the WORTH Weekend apart from other existing assessment processes is its singular format of cohesive 2-day experience around intercultural and creative innovation activities. This offers real on-site opportunities to bring transnational and cross-discipline collaborations into fruition by conducting the final evaluations, fostering relationships construction, reinforcing the project values and brand, and triggering knowledge and best practices exchange between the 95 finalist partnerships of the 3rd call, the 63 awarded partnerships of the 2nd call, mentors, keynote speakers and trainers, evaluators, policymakers and other community members. Over 200 people are expected to join this year’s edition.
In the framework of the last year of Europe 2020 agenda, the WORTH Weekend aims to contribute to the development of a more smart, sustainable and inclusive growth through design solutions.
Together with the evaluations sessions, the WORTH Weekend has a programme of inspiring lectures and workshops where the global challenges and the way designers and SMEs can contribute with key solutions converge around circular economy and resources efficiency, rethinking social innovation and social inclusion; the reinvention of craftsmanship and European heritage preservation; advanced digitized manufacturing, value chains and business models; smart and high-performance materials; high-value added solutions for attractive growth markets.
