Increased quality of sustainability support
Johanneberg Science Park, together with two other science parks in Spain and Estonia, has been granted support from the European Commission's research and innovation program Horizon 2020 to increase the ability to support sustainable development in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
- This collaboration project will sharpen us and make us an even more powerful resource for SMEs, who are important engines in the transition to a sustainable society, says Björn Westling, head of the SME operations at Johanneberg Science Park.
In the project, the partners will share good practices, tools and initiatives that address the three dimensions of sustainability (social, environmental, economic) with the support of relevant European external experts. Peer-learning activities are applied to facilitate collaboration and knowledge transfer.
The results will be gathered in a so-called "Design Options Paper" and will be disseminated among international networks whose members provide support services to small and medium-sized enterprises and among relevant stakeholders and authorities at all levels.
This will lead to increased quality of sustainability support, offered by organizations working with small and medium-sized enterprises, and contribute to the competitiveness of small and medium-sized enterprises in their circles.
Partners: FUNDECYT Science and Technology Park of Extremadura (SP), Johanneberg Science Park (SE), Tallinn Science Park Tehnopol (EE))
