Istituto Europeo di Design

Founded in Milano in 1966, IED is the only Higher Education Institution in the creative field to have maintained a completely Italian identity over time.

With a network consisting of 11 sites within 3 Countries (Italy, Spain and Brazil), every year IED launches innovative training projects in the fields of Design, Fashion, Visual Arts and Communication, to ensure that its students will be the future new interpreters of the universal language of design.

Therefore, IED assumes the identity of a research space, an open network, inclusive and active, able to teach and promote design culture for individuals and society, a place where the approach to Design becomes a vehicle for social, cultural and economic transformation.

Design culture, design thinking and a strong connection to Made in Italy: a constant balance between creativity, research and production.
