Call Development projects in incubators – 2017-2019

Purpose and goal

The main purpose with the project is that the Swedish incubator companies shall increase their competitiveness by integrating sustainability (environmentally, socially and economically) in their companies and thereby contribute to a sustainable development of the society and the world as a whole.

Expected results and effects

The effects that the project is expected to lead to are that the incubator comapanies increasingly are integrating sustiainability issues in their business and thereby contributes to Agenda 2030. With support from adjusted processes, methods and tools the companies will also have reached knowledge of how their work with sustainability can be further developed and within wich areas they should focus. Another expected effect is that incubators around the country have more knowledge about how to support the incubator companies in their work with sustainability issues.

Planned approach and implementation

Many incubator companies can foresee the advantages with working with sustainability in a systematic way, but there are insecurities in how to approach the issues. Within the project we will create smart processes, methods and tools that will be used as a practically and user friendly support for integrating sustiainability in incubator companies. When the development phase has been implemented and evaluated, processes, methods and tools will be spread to other incubators in the country and will enable a great number of companies to get started with their work with sustainability.
