The call for projects is one of the tools of action of Pro Helvetia’s new model for the promotion of design, part of the foundation’s special focus «2016-2020 Coordinated promotion of design and interactive digital media (Culture and Business)».

This four-step promotion model seeks to explore possibilities to close the gap between creation and market, aiming to support the development and execution of top-notch projects in all branches of design. Talented Swiss practitioners in fields including fashion, product design, furniture, graphic and textile design are backed not only in the development, testing and implementation of their ideas, but also in the marketing of the resulting product. With this approach, university graduates as well as established studios can profit from this support.
