CLIC ProjectBooster

CLIC ProjectBooster is a time forced challenge driven innovation project design process


The target of the CLIC ProjectBooster process is to create new challenge driven ideas to solve our systemic challenges. ProjectBooster utilizes online tools and face-to-face workshops to initiate thematic ideations for new projects. The process usually takes 2-3 months. The teams work with cross-sectoral challenges and define research questions. The companies and academia work side-by-side on the challenges at hand. The challenges are initially defined by companies and are based on the industry needs.

In the spring 2023 we will bring topics related to green energy transition, circular economy and bioeconomy to ProjectBooster. Additionally, we will feed R&D&I ideas from GreenE2 and 4Recycling ecosystems into the ProjectBooster process.
