We are convinced WORTH Partnership Project is indeed a programme of interest for the community of Estonian, Baltic and Eastern Europe companies, entrepreneurs and designers involved in the fashion and lifestyle industries. We have built a strong and fruitful relationship with several offices of the EEN and CCI across Europe.
The second call for applications is open now and it is widely promoted across Europe. Baltic countries are strategic states for WORTH, and we are highly interested in the implementation of relevant actions there to invite companies to apply!
The second call closes on the 24th of October 2018.
