  • Applications must involve at least one social-mission organization (e.g. NGO, association, not-for-profit, foundation, social enterprise) and one company (of any size: from SME to multinational) collaborating on a joint project. Collaborations involving multiple partners and including public institutions are highly encouraged to participate. For practical reasons, one of the partners will submit the application on behalf of the team of partners.

    • Lead partnering organizations bring complementary distinct and essential expertise to the co-creation project beyond funding only
    • The project is linked to the core mission/ business of partners and should result in tangible results for each party
