The Tag Innovation School in Milan holds Italy’s first masters course on UX design. Design Group Italia has worked alongside Tag to create the course curriculum for design students.

The 12-week long, intensive course immerses 20 students into the world of user experience. For the next upcoming course, Tag Innovation School held a challenge for students to battle it out to receive one of three scholarships. The three scholarships are provided by DGI, Start-Up Italia, and Valore D. The students split into teams and took part in challenges to test their skills in problem-solving, communication, teamwork, and project and time management.

​DGI took part on the day by presenting talks on the role of design as a driver of innovation and the Internet of Things as an opportunity for physical and digital design. Alongside the scholarship, DGI will also be providing two students with a six-month-long internship.
