For the fifth round of the Open Call Space for Talent, the Fund is making € 250,000 available. This allows 10 special collaborations to be supported.

set-up of the open call
The maximum contribution per project is € 25,000. A condition for support is that it concerns a new collaboration between a designer and a partner that makes an intrinsic contribution and facilitates the project. Depending on the project, the collaborations can vary in form. Examples are research (including material research) within a lab, a residency programme at a knowledge institute, a special collaboration with a development site or experimental research with a partner from the industry or the business community.
