Industrial design offers great potential for LDCs as a driver of innovation, problem-solving and economic growth. The United Nations Technology Bank for Least Developed Countries, World Eco-Design Conference, and the International School of Design at Zhejiang University in Ningbo, China, are excited to cooperate and promote the implementation of the International Design Education (IDE) program.
Under this partnership, eligible students from the world's 46 LDCs will be supported to undertake industrial design training. The International School of Design, Zhejiang University, will facilitate the IDE program, which will provide master education and research on industrial design.
The IDE programme is also an incubator for bridging innovation and entrepreneurship by transforming exceptional projects and research into start-ups and supporting them to innovate and grow by providing business support resources and services, resulting in closer access to manufacturing and business.
The IDE programme is completed in two and a half academic years, offered in English with two scholarship levels for LDCs applicants. Full scholarship covers full tuition fee, on-campus accommodation expenses, comprehensive medical insurance, admission fee and monthly stipend. Partial scholarship covers full tuition fee, comprehensive medical insurance, admission fee and monthly stipend
