Funded Teams – Open Call 2

Funded Teams :: Open Call 2
(March 2018 – September 2018)

 

 

24 projects have been awarded funding, following the WEAR Sustain’s second Open Call for collaborative innovation. These projects are embarking on an intensive 6 month programme, between March and September 2018, of sustainable and ethical prototyping development with the support of allocated hubs and mentors. Information on the first cohort of awardees from our first Open Call can be found here>>.

 

 

Project profiles are in the WEAR Project – Call 2 membership section of the WEAR Network.  Over the coming months profiles will be updates with descriptions, activities, service offerings, enabling technologies, teams (and their relationships with mentors, hubs and others in the ecosystem), along with news and feeds of their progress and outcomes.
