Status Completed
Venture Challenge-Driven Innovation – Stage 1 initiation
Call Challenge-Driven Innovation - Stage 1 Initiation 2015 (spring)

Purpose and goal

The goal was to develop a Step 2 project which addresses the following challenges: - Develop recyclingcycles urban sanitation - The systems are stable and robust and secure for future users. - The consumer will not hesitate to buy food produced on organic wastes. - Develop an organization that ensures that all key actors contribute in the development of a recycling sanitation system. -Ensure that required techniques are available. The identified constellation consists of actors in the chain from farm to table

Results and expected effects

The project has identified the critical factors for large-scale systems to be implemented and developed a project proposal that addresses these challenges for an application to Step 2. During the project, there have been discussions with RoSOR, that have addressed similar issues, for a joint application to Step 2. The project Food in the cycle, along with project RoSOR built a constellation consisting of key actors in the various stages that have been linked to the project

Approach and implementation

When the parties met, it became clear that time was needed to anchor and discussions the individual party´s issues and needs. This has resulted in a good insight into the issues that are critical to each party. The lengthy urban development process - from planning to occupancy - takes 5-6 years is a challenge. To formulate a Step 2 project, it is difficult to be involved early enough to ensure that the pilot installations are in place. Therefore, it has also proved to be more difficult than expected to go from step 1 to get all the players all the way to Step 2
