To achieve this, SIC uses open innovation and new idea generation processes to develop innovative products and services that have a positive impact. The SuCoLo project will leverage the partner’s expertise in sustainable development, community engagement strategies (such as participatory design), and open innovation approaches (including city-driven innovation). These competencies are the result of the partner’s long standing activities in new idea development, advisory services, research, and cross-sector collaboration.
