In Helsinki, Green PAC iLab won the EEPA Grand Jury Prize 2019 of the 260 selected initiatives. A great achievement! The European Commission has officially named Green PAC iLab the most creative and inspiring entrepreneurial initiative in Europe.
The European Entrepreneurship Promotion Awards, abbreviated EEPA, exist since 2006 and is organized by the European Commission. With these awards, the European Commission wants to recognize and reward public authorities and public-private partnerships for their success in entrepreneurship. Green PAC iLab participated, won the Dutch final and qualified for the European final in Helsinki.
The jury was particularly impressed by the way Green PAC iLab supports and guides starting entrepreneurs. Precisely in close interaction with the Plastics Technology research group of Windesheim and the Sustainable Plastics research group of NHL Stenden. The iLab shows in practice that it successfully contributes to the development of a new generation of entrepreneurs. A generation for whom sustainability and the circular economy are important.
