Knowledge development about designing Ultra Personalised Products & Services

Call for Proposals open May 1st 2019

Fieldlab UPPS is inviting design-driven SMEs and creative professionals to submit project proposals around the designs of Ultra Personalized Products & Services. Three to five projects will be granted in this second call. 50% of the funds will be matched by CLICKNL. The company or creative professional’s contribution is at least 50% of the project size in cash or in man hours.

Thanks to 3D data, a rich information source for designing well-fitting products has come a lot closer. The design approach for UPPS is still in the preliminary phase. Field lab UPPS takes on challenges to design UPPS based on practice-oriented issues and shares the results during Meet UPPS. Field lab UPPS offers support from experts in the designs of UPPS and we can experiment with facilities like 3D scanners and printers. We are based at the TU Delft. Creative professionals and design-driven SMEs are invited to submit project plans for cooperation within the domains of health, sports, safety & fashion.
