06.03.2020. CILIFO-CONECTA was presented on Thursday 17th February 2020 as a proposal to consolidate and improve the entrepreneur ecosystem’s skills in Andalusia, Valencia and Castilla y León
Among CILIFO’s sustainability activities, Finnova Foundation and the rest of the beneficiaries are making efforts to look for alternative ways for funding.
In fact, CILIFO applied for the CONECTA call from the Empleaverde 2020 programme (Fundación Biodiversidad) through Finnova, thanks to the support of other beneficiaries from CILIFO, like Universidad de Évora.
The aim of CILIFO-CONECTA is to consolidate and improve the entrepreneur ecosystem’s skills in Andalusia, Valencia and Castilla y León through training in the field of green entrepreneurship, by exchanging good practices and connecting with the European entrepreneur ecosystem. This connection will take in Belgium, Portugal and Italy, where Spanish entrepreneurs will be put in contact with European institutions and Belgian and European entrepreneurs. Within these three European countries is important to underline Portugal’s role, as one of its universities, Universidade de Évora, will be one of the project’s partners. The project will have a transversal environmental approach, that will boost and consolidate processes, products, and services in the domain of adapting and fighting against climate change, specially focusing on the fight against forest fires.
This call is focused on projects that improve entrepreneur’s skills that live in Spain through mutual learning with other stakeholders that are part of the European entrepreneur ecosystem. The fund aims to boost sustainability of economic activities in every sector, moving towards a lower carbon and circular economy. This should be done by including biodiversity in the administration and processes of enterprises and by making use of natural resources in a more efficient way.
