Applications are officially open for We Change, the Compraverde Buygreen Forum's annual initiative to promote research and development of innovative solutions for the ecological transition of all production sectors. On 6, 7 and 8 October in Rome, at the Forum 2021, the section will be entirely dedicated to the identification of innovative solutions for the sustainable restoration of works of art and buildings subject to protection under Legislative Decree 42/2004. We Change is organised by Fondazione Ecosistemi in partnership with YOCOCU, YOuth in COnservation of CUltural Heritage, and CNR-ISAC, Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate.
The call is open to individuals, associations, research groups, teams of aspiring entrepreneurs, micro, small and medium-sized enterprises, and start-ups of all sectors and nationalities. The call is open for an idea for a sustainable restoration product or service to be developed and promoted or an existing product or service whose use can be rethought and adapted to support the ecological and just transition of the restoration sector.
Applications can be submitted online until 24 September.
With We Change, the forum rewards innovative ideas and the ability to implement them. In addition, it wants to contribute to the expansion of the offer of solutions for sustainability in organisations and in procurement, promoting the encounter between a qualified demand that is currently unsatisfied and the subjects able to offer suitable innovative solutions.
To apply, a video presentation of the proposed solution lasting no longer than 3 minutes and a description of the design status of the proposing party's solution will be required. The most innovative solutions will be able to participate in pitching sessions, in front of an audience of potential users (restorers and companies in the sector), developers, partners and media.
