Global Grad Show is a world first event that brings together the most innovative ideas and projects by graduates from the best design, technology and engineering universities across all continents.

The exhibition is curated to provide insight into how the next generation of professionals creates meaningful solutions for the world’s most pressing challenges, from social to environmental and from technological to economic.

To date, Global Grad Show has featured over 550 student projects from 137 universities including internationally prominent institutions such as MIT, Royal College of Art and Seoul National University, alongside leading regional universities such as Makerere University in Uganda, Chiang Mai University in Thailand and University of Talca in Chile.

The 2019 edition will return to Dubai Design Week, 12-16 November, to feature 150 social impact projects from graduates all over the world. This year’s showcase will again display inspiring solutions and prototypes alongside an exciting programme, engaging graduates and academia with the public and global leaders in the field of innovation.

Global Grad Show has announced Eleanor Watson as the curator for the 2019 Edition. Currently part of the curatorial team of the Design Museum in London, Eleanor graduated from UCL before undertaking a Masters in History of Art at The Courtauld Institute of Art under a full scholarship from the V-A-C Foundation.
