Smart Business Models for Industry (SBMI)
Statement of the problem
New, cooperative business models can contribute to reaching climate and energy goals. But exactly how do these models work when diverse players such as commercial and industrial enterprises, municipal utilities and start-ups are suddenly working towards a common entrepreneurial objective?
In this project, avantsmart collaborates with industrial and research partners and with municipal utilities to develop ideas for innovative business models. Both digital technologies and cross-border cooperative thinking play a crucial role in this process.
This project is part of the New Energy for Industry NEFI flagship region. The results will be published in August 2020, after the scheduled end of the project.
