Coopen is a participatory process, organised in four phases, with the aim of fostering the identification of innovative, sustainable and concrete technological solutions to meet specific challenges related to sustainable development in Africa through partnerships between Italian Civil Society Organisations and innovation stakeholders, such as teams of innovators, entrepreneurs, research bodies and university departments, not yet formally established, and/or start-ups and SMEs already formally established.

In order to identify the most promising solutions, support their development and respond to the challenges defined by the CSOs, the Coopen initiative promotes the Call for Innovators, aimed at the world of innovation.
The collection and selection of the best solutions will lead to the creation of a partnership project between the selected CSOs and the winners of the Call for Innovators, in order to support strategic alliances and assist open innovation processes that also leverage technology in developing new operational and social business models.

Collection of the applications: from 06 April 2021 to 28 May 2021 (by 11:59 pm), by filling in the Application Form www.f6s.com/coopencallforinnovatorsfoodagriculture/apply
