GreenTecLab – the most important facts about green start-ups in Germany at a glance
As part of the GreenTecLab project (as part of the European Climate Initiative (EUKI) of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU)), local startup labs as well as a virtual European network are being established to support green startups in the partner countries Greece, Slovakia and Spain. Climate protection and sustainability are to be improved through new technical solutions in order to promote the transition to low-emission economies. Another aspect is the development of new, local labour markets to use green potentials to fight youth unemployment.
In order to be able to address the needs for the establishment of green start-ups in the course of the project in a country-specific manner and not to design parallel support offers, comprehensive research on the support infrastructure in the respective partner countries is first on the agenda. The most important results from the different countries will later be compared with each other, examined for generalisable aspects and used for the virtual network.
Today, the German team is presenting the most important results of the research on green start-ups in Germany in a “factsheet”.
