SwitchMed Connect 2015 is the first annual gathering of Mediterranean stakeholders to build synergies, exchange knowledge, and scale up eco and social innovations. On October 29th and 30th, leading startups and entrepreneurs, industry agents, initiatives, change agents, policy and financial institutions working on applications of productive, circular and sharing economies in the Mediterranean will come together in Barcelona, at the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelon (CCCB).
During those two days, they will share stories, expertise and experience on eco and social innovations. They will exchange in interactive sessions and find synergies. They will get inspired on how to scale eco and social innovations, and create actions in the scaling up labs.
There will be three kinds of sessions:
In an EXPERIENCE session, you can get an insight into eco and social innovations in the Mediterranean. The activity will dive deeper into at least 50 innovations right-now-happening for sustainable food, sustainable tourism, sustainable housing, sustainable mobility and sustainable fashion.
In an INVESTIGATE session you can share and discuss challenges, barriers and opportunities for scaling up innovations in one of the Working Groups (Labs). These will include access to finance, collaborative economy approaches, circular value chains, market links, shifting buyer behaviour.
In an ACT session, you can co-create an action, design actions and plan projects to scale up innovations. The event will design actions to follow-up after SwitchMed Connect 2015 and revisit in SwitchMed Connect 2016.
