Support from

As a member of the DFGN we have Relations to many universities all over the world. We can support you in finding the best fit for your purposes.


We cooperate with multiple universities which are part of the Design Factory Global Network (DFGN).

The DFGN is a network of innovation hubs in universities and research organisations. DFGN is on a mission to create change in the world of learning and research through passion-based culture and effective problem solving.

We already have established exchange partnerships with the design factories on the map, so an exchange there would be easy to organize. Nevertheless, we can try to organize exchange opportunities with the rest of the network.

You can find a complete list of all design factories on the DFGN website.
