ORGANIZATIONAL AND TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION
ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY is a golden thread throughout the ROCK project as urban regeneration efforts are intrinsically linked to attempts to minimize our impact on the environment – whether through the creative and adaptive reuse of built heritage, the circular model approaches to improve well-being, the use of inclusive and participatory approaches to involve citizens in co-designing solutions, or efforts to contribute to the resilience of communities to climate change.
EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS implemented during Living Labs, bring together content producers (youngsters) and content owners (elderly) to bridge generational gaps and to value and empower the elderly population. ROCK promote site-specific and ethnography-based art interventions in public spaces destined to the wider public.
INNOVATIVE TRAINING SOLUTIONS
AN INCUBATION PROGRAM will boost green and creative business creation in each target city to create programs concerning business model, financial mechanisms, fundraising strategy, and communication campaign. This program is designed for incubator managers, Eco-entrepreneurship trainers, professors, business coaches, business men and women, and sustainability practitioners.
ECO-INNOVATION WORKSHOPS will stimulate sustainable business innovation via exchanges of know-how between green SMEs and ecopreneurs from all across Europe. They will share best practices, replicable and adaptable successful business models, establish B2B cooperation mechanisms, and undertake joint forums and R&D activities able to link the green perspective with the enhancement of CH.
ROCK ROAD SHOWS will be held in Replicator cities for and with the established Ecosystems of stakeholders to diffuse in a useful and effective way knowledge of business matching of the interoperable ROCK platform. These road show will link with the ROCK market place event connecting culture to business to be held in 2018, the European year of Cultural Heritage.
ROCK COFFEE TALKS are a compilation of dialogue sessions among intellectuals and academics aimed to help catalyze connections around specific topics, such as cultural heritage, minority groups involvements, business opportunities, etc.. Each Coffee Talk features resource experts who highlight innovative approaches and strategies to connect, engage, and dig in deeper after the webinar.
