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.



Who can apply?

The competition is open to any legal entity or natural persons (students, professionals, citizens, enthusiasts, etc.) or group of natural persons.

Legal entities (startups, SME’s) must be established in EU Member States or Associated countries to Horizon 2020. Natural persons must be at least 14 years old.

  • mechanics;
  • mechatronics;
  • electronics;
  • consumer products;
  • design;
  • furniture.

The submitted solution/product must be manufacturable. Software can be part of the solution/product, but not the entire solution/production.
