About the project Edit

Skipso leverages the power of the Internet to accelerate the Cleantech Revolution.
The Skipso platform aims to:
- Accelerate innovation in clean technologies by creating an environment where ideas, best practices and opportunities can be exchanged
- Bridge the gap between industry and research institutions / academia by creating an alternative platform for collaboration and knowledge transfer
- Facilitate interaction and collaboration of talented individuals and experts worldwide, providing them with new professional opportunities and challenging projects to work on
- Support cleantech companies investing in innovation by giving them access to an expert community to outsource their R&D or sponsor cleantech innovation research
- Help entrepreneurs and innovators kick-start their projects by gaining easier access to capital & support services.

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

Skipso is the first marketplace for cleantech companies, organizations, knowledge centers and clusters. It facilitates open innovation in the context of an IP-intensive environment, helping organizations overcome their resistance to collaboration and know-how transfers.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

Skipso is an open innovation platform dedicated to green technologies and clean solutions. It is geared towards SMEs and small organizations whereas most crowdsourcing platforms - such as Innocentive - tend to focus on large multinationals as key users.

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

Skipso is developing APIs for other organizations such as clusters or industry associations to use white label platforms to allow their members to connect, collaborate and drive innovation. Such a deployment allows Skypso to rapidly disseminate the functionalities that have been developed on their own plaform in order to be used by third parties.
