Worth Project

Inspired by the designer Charles F. Worth – a pioneer of of Haute couture, the WORTH project will initiate partnerships between Designers and Enterprises (manufacturers, retailers, craftsmen, technology companies) in fashion, textiles, jewellery, footwear, eyewear, furniture, fur, leather industries, from different EU member states (and other CIP participating countries) to create innovative new products. Partners will be supported to develop the products, define their market positioning, exhibit them at trade fairs or exhibitions and organize IP rights management.

Coaching and strategic advice will be provided to the partnerships. The Worth project is supported by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Enterprise & Industry and financed under the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP) which aims to encourage the competiveness of European Enterprises.
