As a loyal partner of APCI, the association for the promotion of design, coordinator and founder of France Design Week, the Île-de-France region is committed to France Design Week in its territory for the 2021 edition.
The Ile-de-France region is the driving force behind French design.
Design activities are particularly concentrated there, with 73% of designers having suffered the economic consequences of the health crisis.
In addition, the Île-de-France Region voted in July 2017 a strategic policy in favor of design in Île-de-France to promote innovation and business growth, with one of the highlights being encouraging companies to strengthen the integration of design in their development strategy and innovation projects.
Through France Design Week, the Region wishes to promote the skills of designers to help them take over their business, to communicate on regional actions and tools in favor of design to encourage companies to use them, and to act in favor of the attractiveness of the territory.
