Registrations open today for the Research Contest on Future Mobility in Cities, a competition organised by Italdesign as part of the celebrations marking the 50th anniversary since its foundation.

The participants, who will have to be aged between 18 and 35, may sign up only through the dedicated website, at, up to the deadline of 1 May. Then they will have to submit their projects by 31 August, either through the portal or, in the case of physical objects, by sending them to the administrative office responsible for organising the contest.

The contest information, rules and process are published on the website.

Contest process

Once all projects have been submitted, an Italdesign committee will assess them and choose the ten best ones to go into the final phase.

The ten finalists will be judged by an international panel composed of seven professionals in the design, architecture, town planning fields and from the academic world. The jury will select the two winning projects and the winner, if any, of a special award. They will receive the prizes of €25,000, €10,000 and €5,000, respectively.
