IED Talks returns this February with three online conversations on the role of design in topical issues.

Urban transformation, the generation of new user experiences, and strategic design as a key element to innovate the business model will be the main themes of these talks, which will take place within the programme of the Madrid Design Festival 2021.

For this edition of the event, one of the most prominent design appointments in the calendar — of which IED Madrid is the official educational institution — a range of activities have been programmed around the theme Redesign the world.

In this light, IED Talks will address the transformative power of design with experts in different disciplines who will share their experiences and visions with attendees via a live broadcast.
