In a similar scheme as « LILLE, EUROPEAN CAPITAL OF CULTURE » in 2004, Lille will be the « WORLD DESIGN CAPITAL » in 2020.
This nomination is the result of a competition between cities all around the world, and more particulary, of a final between Lille and Sydney. The aim of being a World design capital for Lille is to be able to transform and to galvanize the metropolitan territory through the use of design.
In order to achieve this goal, any structure of the MEL (European Metropolis of Lille) can submit a project, called « Proof of Concept » (POC). So far, The Université Catholique de Lille has submitted 13 files, concerning various projects in progress.
The themes of these POCs contribute to create « the codesign dynamics of a desirable future » within the Université Catholique de Lille.
They concern the educational innovation, the relationship with the territory, the energy and societal transition, the artistic dimension…
Synergy is encouraged between POCs of the University as well as links with others POC of the territory.
In 2020, these projects will be promoted through a program, in the same form as the one for « LILLE 3000 » : communication, exhibitions, visits, courses around different themes).
The Université Catholique de Lille will actively participate in the program established by Lille World Design Captial, and will also provide a specific program concerning the University. This will promote the outcomes of the POCs, but also integrate events offered by the establishments.
