With the goal that every e-commerce delivery in Sweden should contribute to a vibrant society and be sustainable!
E-commerce is complicated but there is a great deal of potential for future development.
ReLog & CLOSER have now brought organisations from society, business and academic together in this Vinnova-funded initiative. The initiative has the aim to ensure that every e-commerce delivery in Sweden will contribute to an active society and be sustainable.
To be part of the partnership
The Future sustainable e-commerce initiative offers many opportunities! It also means that there are various levels on which you can get involved in the partnership.
As an organisation, you can take an active and leading role of project management in all or parts of the projects. Another way to get involved is to be part of one or two projects by sharing your own specialist knowledge and experience, but, of course, benefit from others. There are no limits, only opportunities. If you do not have the time and resources for this within your organisation - don't worry! You can still play an important part by participating in seminars, events and workshops and be involved in the exchange of knowledge and experience.
A little about how a project concept can develop into a project
- You and your organisation have an idea, you tell us about the idea and you, or we separate or together to contact the necessary organisations to make it possible.
- Once the parties who can make it possible to implement the idea have been gathered, we start to collaborate on issues such as the potential budget, level of ambition, objectives and purpose of the project.
- When this is in place we will help you find a funding option or potential funding you can apply for, as well as ensure that the project has project management.
- Once we have been granted funding and the project is underway, we will take it from the conceptual stage to testing in a real-life environment!
A project idea is submitted that fits into the framework of internal funds. The template is provided by the coordination team after the first discussion.
The application is sent to the steering group
The project idea is specified in an application after discussion with the project coordination.
The application is reviewed by the steering group
To ensure that the project idea is in line with one or more of the investment's 8 focus areas, the application is reviewed by the steering group. The steering group reviews and decides on new applications on a monthly basis.
A positive decision from the steering group shortly afterwards means project start.
Would you like to be involved?
We must do this together! Do you have a concept or proposal for a project in the area? If so, feel free to send us your application and you will have the possibility of receiving support and joining our collaboration platform on sustainable e-commerce.
Your proposal does not have to be specific or totally prepared, but an idea or outline of a project would be great. It is important, however, that it relates to one or more of the eight key areas previously identified within the initiative.
