The research covers different aspects related to the training of designers in the region, considering not only the offerings of schools but also the relationships within the entire system associated with the design world, in order to observe its cultural impact on the territory.

The aim is to explore and outline the overall scenario of educational offerings and future potential, aligning them with the needs for cultural, social, environmental, and technological development and progress. This exploration also involves comparison with emerging directions at both national and international levels.

A distinctive aspect of this comprehensive mapping, in terms of quantity and quality, lies in considering not only the contributions of institutions linked to tertiary education—such as universities and higher education—but also secondary education, extending to include educational activities offered by non-school entities (organizations, cultural institutions, associations). These are equally crucial in building an effective territorial system in all its aspects and relationships.

The objective is to provide all involved stakeholders—students, teachers, policymakers from public and private entities with interests in the Design world—with a useful tool to understand the educational system of an increasingly sought-after profession
