Milano Design PHD Festival is the program of meetings with the international protagonists of design culture during the discussions of the final exams of the Ph.D. in Design at the Milan Polytechnic.

The meetings will take place from 24 to 28 March 2014 in English and are open to the public.

The intent is to discuss some issues related to the project with Italian and foreign researchers, Ph.D. students and internationally renowned teachers on precious occasions for debate. The three major themes tackled this year will be Design in relation to users, interfaces and social interactions. 

The 3 days will be divided into: 
DEFENSE OF DOCTORAL THESIS (the candidates will support their thesis in public with the re-election of external teachers to the Polytechnic, in front of a commission of international experts); 
OPEN LECTURES (lessons held by international experts specifically invited to Milan); 
PhD EVENINGS (events of leisure and socialization to continue to confront even in an experimental way).

The PhD in Design is active at the Politecnico di Milano, proposed and coordinated by the Department of Design, with the Department of Mechanics and the Department of Chemistry, Materials and Chemical Engineering.
