Together with the Vienna Business Agency, we announce a challenge on the topic of Urban Food & Design. The call for entries is aimed at designers and creative professionals from all sectors.

This year, the URBAN FOOD & DESIGN format activates the innovative power of the design and creative scene to initiate change processes in four different sectors of the food industry. With an open call centering on specific challenges URBAN FOOD & DESIGN enables the cooperation with Lorenz Bahlsen Snack-World, markta, Herd Open Kitchen and GOURMET Kids to jointly develop innovative design solutions.

Designers can thus work directly and with realization potential on significant challenges of the  urban food supply and present tangible projects in the festival program of VIENNA DESIGN WEEK. The design solutions developed are intended as a starting point for long-term cooperation between creatives and the food industry.
