The platform enables the free training for all target users interested in enhancing their competences on creativity and related topics and aims at explaining how it can influence and support the ability in innovation and development of sustainable businesses. The training course is dedicated to all professionals of the furniture, interiors’ sectors (architects, designers, professionals in general) but it can be useful also for other sectors with specific attention to students working in the creativity sector and trainers of all sectors horizontally.

This first pilot period will be a true test phase for improving the training course and finally validating it in the definitive version.
