Each partner organization was chosen for the expertize and value it can bring to the development and implementation of the project.
Szczecin Municipal Government, Town Hall (Poland) and Fondazione Golinelli (Italy) are the project’s associated partners, engaged principally in the dissemination of results, having shown interest and support to the project from the early stages.
INNO-TEC-LAB with a duration of 24 months starting September 2020, sees partner organizations involved in developing the following intellectual outputs:
