Instituto Europeo di Design(IED). Design Scholarships 2011-2012

The Instituto Europeo di Design (IED) is pleased to announce that there are 38 scholarships for international students. Participants are invited to take part by developing a project and have the chance to win one of the 38 international master scholarships for the 2011-2012 school year for studies in Milan, Rome, Turin, Cagliari, Venice, Florence, Madrid and Barcelona.

Develop a project on the theme: Your Reused Design. “Reuse” means using an item more than once, for the same function, or for a second life, when it is used for a different purpose. By reusing, new shapes can be created from old materials. Reuse is a very important part of a sustainable behavior. Reusing is different from recycling, which consists in processing used materials for the production of new objects.
