INCOVER won the POWER Idea Contest for Sustainable Communities!



We are pleased to announce you that INCOVER project is among the 10 winners of the POWER Idea Contest for Sustainable Communities. This contest was organized by the EU funded POWER (Political and sOcial awareness on Water EnviRonmental challenges) project that explores the use of community-driven digital platforms to share knowledge and experience on water-related issues. The contest was launched in September 2018 to foster the development of innovative ideas that offer solutions to challenges that local communities face. During the first phase of the contest, more than 140 ideas were submitted to the platforms of the cities Leicester, Milton Keynes, Sabadell and Jerusalem.

INCOVER idea was submitted on Sabadell platform, to propose solutions for Sabadell city (Spain) to face climate and water challenges. After it has been selected as finalist, INCOVER submitted a new video to explain how INCOVER solutions can be applied to Sabadell city. Thanks to the feedback and support of the Sabadell POWER community, INCOVER idea was selected by the jury among 10 winners.

The winners will be invited to the POWER conference in Brussels between October 9-10, 2019 where they will meet supporters who could help them with the further development and implementation of their idea (with know-how, contacts and/or funding).

They will:

  • attend a coaching session on innovation design and implementation;
