ERASMUS+ project – FINAL report assessment

 |  Category: SPCleantech News

On 31.12.2023 SPCleantech and the partners have finished a 3 years ERASMUS+ project “IMPACT / Building values-based innovation cultures for sustainable business impact

The duration of the project was from 01/01/2021 – 31/12/2023. The ERASMUS+ Programme, as well as the IMPACT project promote the open access to the educational material, documents and audio-visual media developed and produced in the project lifetime, which gives an opportunity to the wider community to get freely accessible material and benefit from newly obtained results and knowledge.The ambition of IMPACT was to drive innovation and entrepreneurship based on values of sustainability and facilitates organisation-wide cultural change toward more sustainable innovation processes.

IMPACT directly contributed to the key objective of the Knowledge Alliance action to strengthen Europe’s capacity for innovation and foster entrepreneurship in higher education, business and society at large. Most importantly, the project ensures that the new innovation and entrepreneurship approaches are based on values of different stakeholders, striving for enhanced sustainability and making positive impact to the broader socio- economic environment.

  • HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management – project coordinator
  • Complutense University of Madrid, Spain

Finally we have received the FINAL report assessment from the European Commission and we are proud to announce, that we have received a very high score in the Commissions Final assessment: 9 out of 10 possible.

In the Overall comments the Commission states that:

“This project dealing with sustainability in innovation has potential to be a phare project of the knowledge Alliance Action. The added value in building a value-based innovation culture for sustainable business impact is high for both for higher education ( teachers and students) and the industry (coaches, facilitators and employees). The project is a clear example on how a good degree of innovation that can be achieved by an Alliance with strong synergies and pertinent supporting mechanisms for cross-sectorial collaboration. Specific built in mechanisms such as mixed working groups in the work plan for each work package have been appropriate support measures. The project is also a good example of how to build effective university research into industry practice. Overall the project contributes highly to European policies in education, skills development and the Green deal strategy.

The project has been very well designed, managed and implemented. Quality control mechanisms, including accreditation as well as sound exploitation, dissemination and sustainability guidelines have been followed.
In terms of project results it is significant that the academia highlights as one of the main benefits, the development of a long-lasting community of practice engaging HEI, practitioner organisations , consultants and policy managers. This is at the basis of creating European innovation and innovation ecosystems.

The project outputs focused in teaching and training in the target sustainability in innovation domain are clearly oriented towards addressing current sustainability challenges and creating a sustainability culture of innovation, at the academy and the industry with the support of innovative pedagogies and aiming at fostering long-term change. It is a good accomplishment that the 3 new independent interdisciplinary modules developed are at the final state of accreditation (3 ECTS credits each). It is also of interest that they will be put together as part of a “Sustainable innovation practices module”, and that the courses will be available for students via open access, although this integrated approach has only been introduced and not fully developed. The project envisages a high level of exploitation of results for all the participating HEI and for most of the industry participants of a number of target countries.

The clear open access approach to the outputs and relevant podcasts through the website or under request is another way to foster exploitation. The potential impact of the project is well demonstrated, and the dissemination approach has very well reached the targets and related stakeholders. Alliance has also produced a high number of research publications, to be continued after the funding period, as well demonstrated. In terms of sustainability, It is very positive that, the project and its results will be linked and integrated to an existing relevant initiative, the international society for professional innovation management, ISMIP and that a new publication will be available after the funding period in 2024.”
