Methodology

“Specialist training in the field of the Circular Economy to create multidisciplinary teams able to offer more sustainable and innovative models of production and consumption.

The programme is divided into 3 parts:

The first part consists of a series of sessions involving creation and co-creation to generate ideas from the challenges and problems presented by those working in the sector. This phase of the programme will include the participation of the 4helix (companies, university, government offices and the general public). The aim of the first phase is to jointly define projects that respond to the real needs of all sectors of society.

Once the idea has been defined the participants move into the training phase, where professionals from the sector help them to assess and validate the idea. At the same time all the teams have a mentor assigned who will monitor the project.

Finally, there is a programme competition where the best project is selected. The winner receives a prize of €2,500 and 6 months in the business incubator worth a further €1,500.
