The MUNICIPAL Series of Events

 

MUNICIPAL is a 'TFV - Networking Event Series'. Innosuisse funds and supports series of TFV - Networking Events for a period up to 4 years to encourage the creation and animation of communities of research and implementation partners interested in emerging technologies and business opportunities as well as interdisciplinary and cross-sector thematic.

 

The series of events are designed and organized by a non-profit organization in Switzerland, with the aim of bringing together interested actors and teams from universities, business and society at national level around a defined innovation theme with the goal to stimulate the exchange of knowledge and technologies and the creation of innovative ideas, to foster the creation of innovative ideas, and to create new links between actors in new and strategically important innovation themes.

 

Themes of economic and societal relevance are to be addressed in an innovative manner. The long-term goal is the creation of an active community of innovators around the theme chosen.

The  TFV-Networking Event Series MUNICIPAL provides Swiss municipalities with access to energy innovations and develops new localized solutions with SMEs and R&D institutions working with civil societies and local citizens.  

After identifying stakeholders, issues and challenges in the Swiss regions, we facilitate open and agile innovation processes between SMEs, R&D, academic and public institutions and civil society organizations. Early from the start, key stakeholders co-create potential solutions along with adaptive governance structures.  

This series not only facilitates development and implementation of innovative sustainable energy solutions at municipal level through collaborative and co-creative methods, yet it connects relevant actors in a multi-stakeholder process to build a transdisciplinary and intersectoral open-innovation community with focus on energy transition. This open innovation community is expanded region by region.
