300 brains co-creating solutions together worth a lot better than one brain! The learnings and best practices shared during the first workshop have been formalized in a booklet: “ONE Challenge, let’s co-create ONE solution”, you can download it HERE.
The second workshop was dealing about the strengths and challenges of the Fund and on how to manage our future challenges. It has been full of ideas, projects and
connections that will help us engage in the preparation of the future transformations of our organizations.
These market-places were animated by the project team of our 60 projects. It was an inspiring moment that has stimulated cluster cross-fertilization and fostered connection.
