The “Twinning Experience” – Why and How to Apply

28 January 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

“The 2022 edition of the IN-4-AHA twinnings is underway. This workshop will present the results of the 1st call for twinnings, display an exemplary twinning pair from the past, and demonstrate how Reference Site members can apply for the remaining slots for the program”

Twinnings are innovation and knowledge exchange activities, that entail the contribution of two different types of organizations: one that develops a solution – the Originator, and another that implements it – the Adopter. IN-4-AHA builds upon EIP on AHA’s twinning program and it’s legacy of connections and shared experiences, documented throughout the years, with its proven value as a scaling up tool. Either as a vehicle for networking, or as an opportunity to test and iterate on already developed solutions in different settings, twinnings allow like-minded stakeholders across Europe to learn and access new experiences.

A first call for twinnings selected the first 7 originator-adopter pairs to participate in the program, and 3 other slots remain for the second call. This workshop will feature the “Twinnings Experience” from the viewpoints of both Originator and Adopter participants from past activities as well as sharing the criteria for the 2nd call. Read more about the second call for twinnings in Futurium or on our website.
