SUPER Project Final Conference

On September 28-29, 2022 the final conference of the second phase of the SUPER project took place in Linköping (Sweden). During the first day of the event, project partners shared the good practices selected in their respective regions to support eco-innovative companies during the COVID-19 pandemic. The benefits and potential barriers of those good practices were analyzed and interesting discussions arose on the potential replicability of the support programs presented.

In the afternoon, the partners had the opportunity to get to know the Ebbepark project (a central city district in Linköping with unique environments for smart living and sustainable growth that works as test bed for research and development purposes) and visited some eco-innovative companies implementing their solutions in the area.

On the 29th, the project webinar was organized under the title “SUPPORTING ECO-INNOVATIVE COMPANIES IN THE TIMES OF CRISIS”. As part of this webinar, that was publicly broadcasted, Erik Borälv from Vinnova, Swedish Innovation Agency, presented practical examples of support during time of crises and its results. Olof Hjelm and Wisdom Kanda, on behalf of Linköping University and SUPER partnership, disclosed the project learnings and good support practices selected. You can accesss the presentations here.
