Pillar 3: Ecosystem/framing conditions

Session 3.3 – Co-funding/other funding

30 October 2018, 17:00-18:00, room STRAUSS 3

This session will present different funding sources (public, private, regional, EU) and their synergies. Citizens expect more and more to set ethics into public funding, for instance using public money for ethical projects, levy funding for societal needs, and involve citizens directly or indirectly in the control of funding programs. Synergies based on the larger use of crowdfunding and matching the requirements of ethical funding may lead to a potential new approach towards industrial innovation better answering societal priorities.
