Inalco forges an alliance with World Design Capital Valencia 2022, once again reaffirming its role as a trailblazer in development, innovation and design.

This initiative, which will transform the city of Valencia into an international reference point in the fields of design and innovation, has been promoted by the World Design Organization (WDO) in collaboration with the Associació València Capital del Disseny.

With the announcement that Valencia had been named the World Design Capital, a new historic milestone was reached, not just for Valencia’s design sector but also for Spanish design, since it is the first time that a Spanish city has been granted this prestigious title, awarded every two years by the WDO.

World Design Capital Valencia 2022’s programme of events encompasses all walks of design, including spatial, service, industrial and architectural design. All these activities will be coordinated to fit in with the city’s cultural calendar of events so as to boost its focus on design and make the activities as accessible as possible to the public.

Hence, from January through to December, each month will have an umbrella theme that covers four different types of events: exhibitions, conferences, workshops and talks. During the said months, as an official sponsor of World Design Capital Valencia 2022, Inalco will have an innovative space in the centre of the city. This close collaboration will no doubt have important outcomes for both parties.
