Milano Design PhD Festival

We are glad to announce and invite you to attend to the Milano Design PhD Festival that will take place from 19th to 21st Feb 2020.
This year we are very proud to celebrate a double anniversary: the 30th anniversary of the Politecnico PhD programme in design, and the 10th of the Festival itself.
Established in 2009, the Festival was born as the place where the PhD candidates of the doctoral programme in Design of Politecnico di Milano, who completed their commitment could defend their thesis.
Over the years it became an international occasion for discussing several issues in design process among Italian and international researchers, PhD candidates and world mentioned professors and scholars.
Nowadays it welcomes meetings and events with the international protagonists of design culture. This year, to celebrate our double anniversary, we are proposing a rich programme of activities and events.
In the following we sum up the activities, reminding that all the details and info are on the PhD website: phd.design.polimi.it/phdfestival/
