The University of Greenwich (lead partner) located in London (UK) in collaboration with one French and one Belgium local authority are looking for partners to develop a project under the Interreg North-West Europe’s priority axis ‘Innovation’, which supports actions aimed at delivering societal benefits through innovation.
Actions developed under this project will target specifically excluded population or population at risk of exclusion and communities under pressure. Actions will aim at supporting the development, testing and implementation of innovative solutions for social needs and problems (‘social innovation’).
The high level objective of this project is to develop new innovative approaches to engaging with key sections of the community that, hitherto, were found difficult to access, and to pilot the use of new technology to support the development of community activities, promote entrepreneurship, and improve skills (including language, financial and digital skills) and hence develop more resilient and cohesive communities.
The partner search is addressed to any local authority (especially above 250.000 inhabitants), universities, R&D agencies, non-profit organisations as well as private partners, including profit-making partners (e.g. SMEs) located in the following countries only:
- The Netherlands
Estimated budget: around € 6 million (60% covered by the EU grant)
Estimated duration: between 30 and 36 months with an approximate starting date if the project is successful in Winter 2017.
Might you be interested, please get in touch with AER Secretariat by 12th October.
