- Training events for intermediaries
- Matchmaking and networking events for startups, SMEs and local innovation actors
- Yearly consumer cleantech pilot competitions for smartups and SMEs in BSR countries with the aim to advance consumer cleantech and the skills, visibility and connectivity of people within the sector.
- Thematic bootcamps for pilot smartups with the aim to develop and strengthen their solutions as well as being a pilot for the development of the innovation process for the intermediaries.
- Awareness raising events
These events provide tailor-made support actions and services as for example ongoing coaching, inspiration from the experts, training and guidance with strategy development, financing and business advice and new tools for international cooperation and cultural capabilities. Other smart specialisation and innovation areas, nodes and accelerators as well as existing transnational networks and support tools are engaged to the ecosystem.
