Calling All European Regions! Join the TRANSFORMER User Forum for a Climate-Neutral Future!

Are you passionate about accelerating the transition to climate neutrality in your region? Excited to be part of a dynamic community of changemakers from diverse backgrounds and sectors? Here's your chance! Introducing the TRANSFORMER User Forum, an open call for European regions to embrace the Transition Super Lab (TSL) approach and drive positive change!

What's a Transition Super Lab (TSL)?

Transition Super Labs are the next big thing in driving climate action. They bring together representatives from business, government, science, and civil society to co-create and implement multiple innovative solutions at a regional scale. Imagine scaling up living lab methodologies to tackle climate challenges head-on!

What the User Forum Offers:

  • Knowledge Exchange: Engage in online and in-person events, fostering collaboration and learning among regions and scaling up living lab methodologies.
  • Practical Insights: Gain valuable insights into successful TSLs already making an impact in Emilia Romagna (Italy), Lower Silesia (Poland), Ruhr Area (Germany), and Western Macedonia (Greece).
  • Funding Possibilities: Explore ongoing funding opportunities through our extensive network of partners, helping you finance your climate initiatives.
  • Conduct Studies: Apply for funding to assess the potential and challenges of TSL implementation in your region. Share your findings with fellow participants and pilot TSLs for collective problem-solving.

Who We're Looking For: 

Are you the driving force behind a transformative regional initiative? We want you on board! We're seeking:

  • Organisations, Businesses, and Civil Society Groups: Host a Transition Super Lab in your region and be a catalyst for change.
  • Scaling-Up Living Lab Innovators: If you're already experimenting with scaling-up living lab methodologies for regional sustainability goals, you are the perfect fit.
  • Regional Sustainability Champions: Share your experience in projects aimed at achieving sustainability, involving stakeholders from the quadruple/quintuple helix.

Our Expectations:

We believe that collaboration is key to achieving a climate-neutral future. We expect:

  1. Active Involvement: Participate enthusiastically in all forum events and workshops to ensure a valuable exchange of knowledge and insights.
  2. Collaborative Engagement: Share your experiences and expertise, contributing to the success of the TRANSFORMER project.

Mark your calendars for 1 September 2023, when the TRANSFORMER User Forum Call opens! Don't miss this opportunity to be part of a transformative movement! The call closes on 15 October 2023. Proposal evaluations will be completed within two weeks after the closing date.

Join us in accelerating the transition to climate neutrality, leaving a lasting impact on Europe's sustainable future. Together, let's pave the way for a greener, more resilient tomorrow!
