This by providing them with support in the form of grants, vouchers and professional services, for embracing the twin transition; for scouting/developing innovative shared technological and operational solutions via cooperation with research and industrial actors from different value chains at local, national EU/global level; and generating/scaling new business models enabled by internet and Hi-Tech also via accessing an innovative source of financing more suitable for their social scope (i.e. crowd-funding, impact investing and PPP).

This will contribute to improving a) the economic resilience of the social-economic value chains in the EU, by better connecting them with other value chains; and their preparedness to cope with future market disruptions by realizing the digital transition (process and product innovation), also reinforcing their capacity to inspire systemic changes in traditional sectors.

The project is led by Fondazione Giacomo Brodolini Srl SB in collaboration with Torino Social Impact.
