Last April, ELISAVA held the International Days for Deans and Design Experts, a variety of workshops and conferences with the contribution of 31 deans and experts of design coming from the most prestigious and relevant art and design schools.

Under the motto "Impact Through Design", ELISAVA and the Cumulus network organized this activity with the aim of fostering research through design with the introduction of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) to design plans of study.
