The European Union: competition for the best design

Industrial design within the European Union

Importance of Design

Design is a key driver of innovation and growth. Design-intensive industries generate 12% of all jobs in the EU and almost 13% of its GDP. And investment in design pays off: companies that own designs have, on average, revenue that is 38% higher per employee than firms that do not.

What is an RCD?

An RCD, registered at the EUIPO, is more than just an intellectual property right. It marks the jump from drawing board to production-ready, from great idea to viable business asset. It is also a success story. Thousands of businesses and individuals from across the globe have chosen the RCD system to protect their designs in the EU. Since the creation of the RCD in 2003, the EUIPO has received more than million designs.


The DesignEuropa Awards celebrate excellence in design and design management among Registered Community Design (RCD) holders, whether they are individual right holders, small businesses or large enterprises.The design awards, organised by the EUIPO, seek to recognise companies and designers that have brought outstanding design to the market with the support and protection of the RCD.

This year applications and nominations for the second edition of the DesignEuropa Awards were submitted until 15 May. The competition is open to any person, entity, or institution that holds a valid RCD. Finalists will be announced in October 2018, and the winners will be revealed at the DesignEuropa Award ceremony on 27 November 2018 in Warsaw, Poland.
