BECOME A CERTIFIED INNNOVATION HOST!

The recruitment is open till the end of August 2016 (early bird till the end of June only).

We live at a time during which people feel a growing need to go out and make change, instead of staying at home and looking at the world from the outside. To support these active citizens, we urgently need people who host, facilitate, moderate, support, inspire, guide and empower others during critical innovation phases or visionary development processes.

Within the Erasmus+ Project „Hosting Social Innovation“ we are launching a pilot program that will bolster those important hosting competencies.
