5 ways of innovation

Active Learning

Activating design knowledge by generating value for companies and institutions is the goal of these paths. Training and applied research are oriented towards understanding new market and consumer demands, to create innovation.

Design Acculturation

Our academic culture and your market challenges meet in innovation paths in which POLI.design makes disciplinary knowledge and active teaching experiences available to companies, associations and institutions.

Partner in Education

The culture of design grows by grafts: among the academia, associations, companies, professionals. A partnership offered through educational paths that we will promote together, in ways that meet your goals.

Internship Experience

Design has many faces, like our students: a melting pot of cultures, languages, experiences, specializations. And only one common trait: an academic education as solid as it once was and as liquid as our times require.

Contests & Events

Design is the engine of growth, cultural orientation, evolution of taste, transformation of lifestyles and consumption. We take care of this at POLI.design, and on these issues, we can develop competitions and cultural events together.
