LAUNCH Nordic is a private-public partnership by IKEA, Novozymes and Kvadrat, as well as the Global Green Growth Forum (3GF), The Danish EPA, Region Skåne, Malmö Stad, VINNOVA and Capital Region of Denmark.
How can we – through new types of materials, or alternative ways of using known materials – significantly increase sustainability in production, manufacturing, and recycling?
Specifically, LAUNCH Nordic Innovation Challenge 2015 is focusing on innovations within the areas of:
- Alternative raw-materials & cultivation
- Sustainable design and manufacturing
- Better design tools for a circular economy
LAUNCH Nordic is interested in innovations with the potential to scale in two years, as well as game-changing early stage technologies and prototypes. Innovations can be business models, financial instruments, technologies and programs that accelerate research, education and capacity building
