The project will bring together a consortium of five higher education institutions (HEIs) and one business partner to review, assess and improve institutional innovation and entrepreneurship practices. The consortium’s vision for 2030 is to build capacity for innovation across HEIs, students, and businesses in the area of big data, environmental science, sustainability, and circular economy (referred to hereafter
as the subject area). This area has been assessed as a key strength of the consortium and is essential to society in order to understand, adapt to, and mitigate against the climate crisis and wider sustainability issues, building entrepreneurial and innovation capacity across all actors in society. The project benefits from an alignment with the goals of EIT Climate-KIC, EIT Digital and EIT RawMaterials, and its outcomes will support the strategic aims of these Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs).
