The WORTH Partnership Project creates and supports transnational collaborations between fashion designers, creatives, manufacturing enterprises (SMEs) and technology firms looking to develop design-driven and innovative products in the areas of Fashion/textile, Footwear, Furniture/home decoration, Leather/fur, Jewellery and Accessories.
Luscinus actively promoted the first two calls for the program, helping to secure several of the 80 Dutch projects submitted (and 25 of which got awarded). Invited by the Worth consortium, Koen also acted as one of the evaluators for projects in open calls, presented his “Five ingredients for a successful partnership project” on stage during the Worth weekend in Valancia in 2019 and was the invited opening keynote speaker for Worth Weekend in Valencia in 2020. As the winning projects move into the development stage, Koen is mentoring several of them during their 12-month support program offered by Worth. Since 2022, he is also member of the Steering Comittee.
