Every year from April to June, the city of Pforzheim, in cooperation with Pforzheim University and the Design Center Baden-Württemberg, invites international young designers to Pforzheim as part of the "Designers in Residence" scholarship programme. "Designers in Residence" is aimed at young designers from the fields of jewellery, fashion, accessory, industrial and communication design as well as other design disciplines. Interdisciplinary working methods are also welcome. A total of three scholarship holders will be invited to EMMA - Kreativzentrum Pforzheim for a three-month working phase.

The scholarship holders will have fully equipped workplaces in the workshops at the creative centre as well as accommodation for the duration of the scholarship. If necessary, they can also make use of the workshops at Pforzheim University. In addition, each scholarship holder receives a monthly support payment and reimbursement of travel costs for arrival and departure. The results of the work scholarship are then presented in an exhibition at EMMA - Kreativzentrum Pforzheim and in cooperation with the Design Center Baden-Württemberg in Stuttgart.
