CIRCULAR CITIES APPLICATION FORM
As part of the European INNOSUP Initiative (ec.europa.eu/easme/en/innosup), DigiCirc aims at boosting the circular economy through digital tools by supporting highly innovative small0 and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the development and uptake of solutions, products or processes based on circular value chains in different sectors and for the territories (digicirc.eu/).
This is the application form for Circular Cities Accelerator Programme. Circular Cities Accelerator Programme will have 2 phases, the 1st phase aiming to develop a value proposition and business plan, while identifying, through 1-on-1 mentorship and systemic design modelling, gaps in knowledge, market access, expertise, equipment, etc. needed to further develop and/or enable commercialisation. The DigiCirc Innovation Ecosystem will be leveraged through a matchmaking tool to help SMEs create complementary consortia, meeting SME capacity gaps, and enabling large scale demonstration.
The 2nd stage will spark consortia’s potential by closely working on solutions’ market potential and go-to-market strategies, as well by providing financial and knowledge-based support to speed up MVP improvements.
During both phases, accelerator beneficiaries will have free access and specific support to use all DigiCirc digital tools and IP services, preparing for and initiating LSD.
In this application form, candidates must propose a convincing innovative product or service, that will benefit from the use of digital tools and has a clear market vision that will disrupt current linear value chains towards a circular one.
