The Italian cMDF competition will be launched at the beginning of April 2022.

The competition welcomes ideas, particularly in a concept phase or early-stage prototyping, looking for design and functionality improvements. The winners will be supported in the collaborative design and development of new and early-stage solutions to any of the proposed themes, helping these reach further stages of prototype development and implementation.
