Do you have an interesting solution or business idea to solve a technological, social or environmental challenge for non-wood forest products (NWFPs)? The INCREDIBLE Open Innovation Challenge (OIC) will select the five most innovative ideas with the potential to increase the environmental, economic or social value of Mediterranean NWFPs.
The five winners will be invited to attend the INCREDIBLE business acceleration programme, designed by our partner ETIFOR together with an international team of leading forestry, business and NWFPs experts. This 10-day intensive training course, held at the Agripolis Campus (Padova, Italy) will be free of charge, with travel costs covered by the project. Participants will have the opportunity to boost their ideas thanks to seminars, support from mentors and experts for coaching, and targeted workshops.
