A resourceful working package for H2020 call: the changing cryosphere: uncertainties, risks and opportunities

The environmental changes affect the entire planet. There is no part of life that is not experiencing the results of the environmental change in some way. In particular, glaciers melting are particularly vulnerable to climate change risking a significant future contribution to changes in sea levels. The ecosystem is put under pressure due to global warming, and the problem does not seem to be getting any better despite the actions taken.

Companies and industries are not helping. Chemicals that are being released into the atmosphere every day, fumes and gas are just adding to the problem. And although there are innovative ways to promote an eco-friendly system for big industries, the actions taken do not seem to be enough.

Under the Horizon 2020 financial framework, the European Union has announced the Changing Cryosphere: Uncertainties, Risks, and Opportunities call to action, aiming at minimizing the damage done to the environment working with the different sector to deal with the problem from many different angles.

The Institute of Entrepreneurship Development, as an active EU Projects partner, is able to provide expertise that will help promote and support this call. In particular, the IED proposes a work package that can be added to a proposal specifically created in order to answer this particular call.

The work packages aim is to promote an eco-friendly startup ecosystem through the conduction of mild economic growth research.

The growing startup scene plays a role in advancing environmental impact technology companies through the rise in the number of experienced entrepreneurs that have the background and temperament needed to successfully launch a new venture. The objective is the partnering and uniting of the startups, incubators, accelerators, public and private sector.

There is a clear need to implement all the appropriate measures due to the risk of desertification. At the same time, we will investigate the economic effects of the phenomenon of the rise of sea level in coastal areas and propose a toolkit of policies.

Establishment of a central hub designed to educate, inspire and prepare startup communities for the eco-friendly ecosystem. Although capital is a catalyst for growth, a sustainable startup ecosystem requires more than investor interest. Large enterprises can play a critical role in nurturing the startup ecosystem by partnering in product development and funding mentoring programs. Collaboration among universities and government agencies can provide growing startups with a competitive edge.

The ecosystem will be based on;

  • a collaborative innovation network, which consists of large enterprises, academic institutions and startups working together.
  • a business environment that is conducive to growth, which helps entrepreneurs quickly and easily set up, operate, and close a startup, as well as provides fiscal incentives designed to accelerate startup growth
  • the right talent, which consist of highly educated and competitively priced talent with specialized skills that are aligned with current market needs.
  • sustainable funding, which is continuous access to capital that enables startups to grow and succeed over the long term.

The IED can put expertise and create this work-package that will fit perfectly to a Horizon 2020 proposal. If you are interested in adding our work-package to your proposal please do not hesitate to contact us today and add us to your consortium. Our expertise in the field of EU Projects and project management make us an expert and reliable partner to work with on every type of EU Project.
