The greenXpo project, which operated from 2013-2015, aimed at faster and wider uptake and exploitation of technological as well as non-technological eco-innovations, in addition to good policy measures related to eco-innovation.
In addition to pooling knowledge on a single online portal at www.innovationseeds.eu, the project set out to proactively promoting the available knowledge to policy makers, enterprises and society.
What made the greenXpo approach unique?
- greenXpo brought together for the first time eco-innovation knowledge from different areas such as technologies, services, business models, processes, and policies in a holistic one-stop shop
- greenXpo used a common methodology to feature knowledge from all areas
- greenXpo presented eco-innovation knowledge in a user-centred, intuitive and easy-to-navigate manner, focusing on the functionality of each piece of knowledge at www.innovationseeds.eu
- greenXpo combined an online virtual knowledge library with real life as well as web-based events and activities to promote knowledge to potential users
greenXpo was coordinated by the German public agency JUELICH and backed by a balanced group of eco-innovation experts, multipliers and communication professionals from six European countries plus Taiwan.
The greenXpo eco-innovation knowledge portal can be accessed at www.innovationseeds.eu, the source for eco-innovation best practice cases and material as well as your interface to the eco-innovation community.
