The purpose of SUSTAINABLE BUILD is to create growth in sustainable building. We help strengthen the competitiveness of sustainable solutions and scale new sustainable products and business models. This is done through an increase in innovation, knowledge sharing and strengthening cooperation across the building industry.
The innovation process in SUSTAINABLE BUILD consists of three annual phases:
Call for Innovators
Screening and Selection
Implementation and Acceleration
In phase 1, the specific challenges of this year’s theme are identified by Sustainable Build partners and other experts in the Danish building industry. During the Kick Off of each annual cycle, the partners choose the theme of the year. Subsequently the events Build-Up and Announcement are held, where the participants identify the specific challenges within the annual theme worth focusing on in the next phases.
In phase 2, the possible innovation solutions for the Innovation Challenge are identified. This is done through a Call for Innovators, where innovators are invited to apply with an innovation. At the same time, 2 Innovation consisting of project partners, works with the theme and the chosen innovators in order to help them scale through collaboration from the Danish built industry.
In phase 3, the 10 best innovations are selected and presented at the Accelerator Forum. Here, the partners and network provide feedback on how the innovations and solutions can be scaled and implemented in the industry.
