THE FUTURE OF urban waters

In partnership with PSL University, this programme aims to develop new solutions for sustainable water management in urban environments. How to adapt uses, better value and share water resources and by-products, in a systemic approach integrating environmental emergency?

Status: MEETING DAYS

THE FUTURE OF Eco-Designed Vehicles

In partnership with Plastic Omnium, this program aims to create multi-actor consortia to develop new modular solutions for the eco-design of vehicles. How do we double the average lifespan of vehicles while reducing their environmental impact and maintaining their value through a modular and upgradable design?

Status: Project selection

THE FUTURE OF SUSTAINABLE BIOMASS VALORISATION

In partnership with the French National Research Institute for Sustainable Development (IRD), and the French Embassy in Tunisia, this program aims to create multi-actor consortia with field actors around the valorization of biomass. How can we co-construct sustainable socio-economic activities regarding plant biomass valorization that raise public awareness and provide work opportunities, in particular for local youth, through low-tech solutions?

Status: PROJECTS FOLLOW-UP

THE FUTURE OF ONE HEALTH

In partnership with the French National Research Institute for Sustainable Development (IRD), this program aims to develop solutions with a one health approach in order to strengthen and improve the preparation, response, and surveillance of epidemics from the phase of emergence. These solutions are intended to be implemented in the field and must therefore take into account the different local contexts and the actors in the field.

THE FUTURE OF textiles & footwear recycling

In partnership with Refashion, this program aims to identify and implement the best solutions to enable the industrialization of the recycling process for unused TLCs and the relocation of this activity within the territories (in France and in Europe). This requires the development of technologies to sort, dismantle and eject materials on an automated line.

PROGRAMME Européen MOSAIC (2021-2023)

The European project MOSAIC (Mission-oriented #Swafs to Advance Innovation through Cocreation) aims to develop pilots combining co-creation, cutting-edge research and societal impact on given territories. These pilots will be used as support for European public policies for the implementation of future innovation programs.

SoScience contributes to the creation of pilots, by using and sharing its expertise around our open innovation methodology “The Future Of”.
