Design-based consumer goods - 2015 COS-DESIGN-2015-3-03 Closed!

Objectives

The call for design-based consumer goods aims to shorten the time-to-market of innovative solutions, remove obstacles to wider application of creative solutions, create or enlarge markets for related products (or services) and finally improve the competitiveness of European SMEs in world markets. Moreover, there is an important potential to replicate the innovations not only in participating SMEs but also across the supply-chain while generating important spill-overs.

Actions

Design-based consumer goods SMEs are diverse and cover value chains composed of  design, product development, manufacturing and distribution operations of various sectors, including for example textiles, clothing, leather and fur products, footwear, bags and accessories, sports goods, games and toys, interior home decoration products (e.g. furniture, sanitary products, floor, wall and window coverings, table and kitchen ware, glassware), spectacles, watches, jewellery, various cosmetic and beauty products, etc.
 
The call will support projects of SMEs deploying novel products, services or solutions through first application market uptake or replication of “state of the art” technologies and creative solutions.
