About the European Design Training Incubator

The 'European Design Training Incubator' (EDTI) has started an EU network project within the Leonardo da Vinci programme. EDTI covers the whole range of learning focused on professional practice in design.

By benchmarking design education and training in the context of the lifelong learning, the core idea behind EDTI is to develop an international network and platform through which design-related organisations can audit existing training provision, identify needs and share and coordinate training development and its implementation.

Under the coordination of 'design innovation', the 6 founding partners were chosen because of their specific expertise in the field, they are 'design innovation', (Belgium), designkunst (Germany), Business Support Center for SMEs - Ruse (Bulgaria), Cirtes (France), Estonian Design Centre (Estonia), Gray's School of Art, the Robert Gordon University (United Kingdom).

The vision of EDTI is to support the creative industries through design training and education. For joining EDTI Network, go to www.edti.eu in the 'About EDTI' area.
