The Next Society

Ongoing project
This project started on Jan 01, 2017 to end on Dec 31, 2021.
THE NEXT SOCIETY is an open community of changemakers, entrepreneurs, investors, corporates, NGOs, public and private innovation, research, and economic development hubs from Europe and 7 Mediterranean countries: Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia …

THE NEXT SOCIETY supports the emergence of talents and innovative leaders who will drive the next trends and usages by targeting start-ups, clusters, and technology transfer offices to accompany their development and by doing so, places the private sector in the driving seat of innovation strategies.

Launched by ANIMA Investment Network, THE NEXT SOCIETY initiated a four-year action plan (2017-2020), co-funded by the European Union up to 90% for a global amount of EUR 7.8 million, which impacts 4 levels of the innovation ecosystem:

- Improve policy frameworks.

- Foster start-up successes.

- Promote and internationalise clusters.

- Accelerate technology transfer towards the enterprise.
