The project works on three levels to harness digital innovations for sustainable development.
In a first step, digital solutions for social challenges are identified and established in workshops and other events such as boot camps and ideas competitions. Social actors are also involved in this process.
The project then supports the development and scaling of the most promising digital ideas by providing long-term funding programmes or individual support.
For all activities, methodological approaches are used that ensure that development reflects the actual needs of the target users. This is designed to increase the impact and benefit of innovations.
In addition, the project contributes to developing an open source platform as part of Horizon 2020, the EU’s research and innovation programme. The purpose of the platform is to prepare markets for transferring environmentally friendly biogas solutions from Europe to developing countries and emerging economies.
