Suitable for companies that are in full operation
Up to ten teams will be selected for the accelerator, starting on April 25 with a joint meeting of participants and the accelerator's steering group, as well as the accelerator leaders being introduced and their roles clearly. Select leaders will provide counselling and guidance to participants through the accelerator.
The ring arrangement is based on layups from Inspiralia. Inspiralia is a Spanish customer-oriented company for entrepreneurs and start-ups specializing in applications for European grants. Inspiralia will thoroughly review all aspects for LIFE applications at lectures and in workshops, but there will also be a clear approach to other EU sponsorship programmes. Inspiralia experts will arrive in the country at the end of the accelerator and take advisory meetings with all participants.
The program takes place in the afternoon on Mondays and before noon on Tuesdays and the accelerator will take place in the klak premises in Grósku and also at the sponsors of the accelerator where participants will get to know their diverse activities. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to participate in various events and conferences in relation to the circular economy.
