Newsletter November 2014

November 2014
Innovation at your fingertips!

We are happy to welcome you to the new INNOVATIONSEEDS' newsletter. With it, the eco-innovation community has another access to our holistic one-stop-shop for eco-innovation knowledge. INNOVATIONSEEDS' knowledge portal provides tailor-made information on all main aspects of eco-innovation.
The greenXpo consortium brings added value to the desired transition to a green economy in Europe. Here, environmental, economic and social policies are aligned to support the sustainable growth. Meanwhile, competitiveness of European industries increases and the environment is protected. greenXpo comprises organisations that have already led actions to promote eco-innovation cases in separate fields. To promote all types of eco-innovation they now pool their expertise and experience with Policies, policy-maker networks, and R&D results.
With getting the INNOVATIONSEEDS' newsletter or by joining our LinkedIn group and following us on Twitter you will become part of this unique eco-innovation community:

  • INNOVATIONSEEDS, for the first time, brings together eco-innovation knowledge from different areas such as technologies, services, business models, processes, and policies in a holistic one-stop shop
  • INNOVATIONSEEDS uses a common methodology to feature knowledge from all areas
  • INNOVATIONSEEDS presents eco-innovation knowledge in a user-centred, intuitive and easy-to-navigate manner that focuses on the functionality of each piece of knowledge
  • Our project combines an online virtual knowledge library with real life as well as web-based events and activities to promote knowledge to potential users
This newsletter is published on a monthly base and features highlights from the platform news, best practices, and interesting policy documents.
Enjoy discovering the glimpse into our portal!
