It is as well a space for international design schools to recruit students and to connect with an international schools network to create partnerships and potential exchange programs.

Participating schools for 2024 will be announced soon.

The Best of Schools and Students Prize awards is presented with media partner Design Milk and sponsored by Alessi.
