Through a variety of projects and formats, we at bayern design underscore the importance of design and the key role it plays in managing economic, societal, and sustainable changes.
We support the state of Bavaria’s funding of design activities and we foster connections among designers and stakeholders across disciplines, companies, universities, institutions, chambers, and associations. We also are active on an international level and are known and recognized as the port of call for all things design.
Information and inspiration
Design must be perceived more strongly as a relevant factor in business. Our growing network helps us create and moderate dialog among entrepreneurs and creatives; actors in chambers of commerce, associations, academia, and the sciences; and decision-makers in the political arena.
Our events, workshops, discussions panels and trade fair appearances offer design aficionados – from students to executives – the opportunity to meet in line with the guiding principle of Design connects. In this way we enhance the visibility of the creative sector and strengthen Bavaria as a site of design.
We advise companies and actors in the creative sector regarding sponsorship opportunities and calls for tender. We support the recruitment of young professionals and specialists and we highlight the added value of offering opportunities for staff members to participate in design-related training.
We also are the point of contact when it comes to consultation regarding the Bavarian state’s funding of design. Business-oriented events in the form of design talks or entrepreneurs’ forums are eligible for funding as are public relations, business-oriented projects in the form of studies, conferences, workshops, trade fair participation, or exhibitions.
All the information regarding sponsorship terms and application requirements is available in the Funding of Design Activities section and on the website of the Bavarian Ministry of the Economy.
