We all know that learning is often complimented and improved through action. The Green4C project will offer a programme of highly innovative opportunities to turn theory into practice. Green4C practice participants will be able to consolidate their knowledge and, at the same time, expand their network with the ultimate goal of bringing their Green Care entrepreneurial dream closer to reality.
BUSINESS INNOVATION CHALLENGE
Green4C will launch an international call (with a specific EU focus) for a Business Innovation Challenge, with preference given to participants of the e-learning course and their final project business plans.
Through the Green4C platform, applicants will compete by submitting a business plan or project idea in one or more of the four Green4C thematic sectors, following the Green4C challenge guidelines.
All participants of the Innovation Challenge will be asked to create a business plan profile on the platform (a specific section will be developed), and will have to promote themselves also through the use of LinkedIn profiles, short videos, etc.
HIGH SPECIALIZATION SCHOOL
Green4C will run the world’s first specialisation school on Green Care entrepreneurship and innovation.
The Green4C’s partnership of highly-qualified and experienced professionals and scientists will create an intensive training programme based on presentations, group work, workshops, seminars, and field visits to successful case studies.
The 20 winning business plans from the business idea competition will gain access to the specialisation school and a European mobility grant.
The specialisation school will also be open to external applications. The winning participants will have the possibility to grow, mash-up or pivot their ideas/projects. The final aim will be to have each participant start developing their innovative project/business idea in the Green4C thematic sectors.
