“The most effective factor in obtaining a fund is to recognize the main needs of the policy area related to each sector and then develop solutions and projects in response to those needs. In my approach I evaluate the projects of a company to find out its KPIs as well as its potential impacts and then match them with the goals of relevant policies,” says Bahman Morteza Etezadibehzadi in our interview.

Using the example of their current project “Plant Protein Extrucer / Greens for Good”, an Open Enterprise to make humanity more resilient in the face of food supply catastrophes, Tiberius Brastaviceanu from Sensorica Open Value Network explained in our recent member meeting at ProofingFuture.EU how they implement Network Resource Planning at Sensorica to organise for collaborative work.
“The Plant Protein Extractor device when fully developed will make it possible to produce edible food from leaves, which humans can not consume directly. My hope is that with this device we will not only be able to make humanity more resilient in the face of food supply catastrophes, but also provide a means to provide low-cost nutritional food to help mitigate the current challenges of hunger and malnutrition,” says Joshua Pearce in our joint interview with Tiberius Brastaviceanu.

“The Social Impact Network is a decentralized ecosystem for impact investments that connects decentralized finance and real-world asset projects to create real social impact and deliver above-average yields to investors. Compared to traditional portfolios, the impact investment offered by our platform is open fund based, easily tradable, transparent, and secure due to the integration of DTL and IoT devices into the funded projects,” says Dr. Nikola Markovic of Social Impact Network as we talk with him, Marina Petrović and Robert Pašičko of UNDP AltFinLab, and Rawad Rizk of UNDP Lebanon about their project collaboration in the DLT4EU accelerator programme.
“The challenges of climate change are far too big for one company to resolve them on their own. Many companies now realise that not only do they make the process easier for themselves when they join forces with others, but they also make much faster progress when they collaborate with others. Collaboration creates a continuous learning process that could not be replaced by desktop research or classic consulting models,” says Joana Schönborn of the strategy consultancy Sustainable Thinking about their Klima thinking circle, a peer learning and training service that helps companies protect themselves against climate risks and thereby develop a resilient business strategy.
“Smart contracts will immutably register E-Mobility usage on the blockchain ledger and automatically make instant split micropayments to all parties involved in providing the service,” says Henk Kuipers of CiSe & Rabobank as we speak about their project collaboration in the DLT4EU accelerator programme.
“Through its DLT4EU journey and its latest Innovate UK grant, Alice is expanding into a decentralised data analytics and visualisation platform for the impact sector. As such, Alice creates a decentralised data ecosystem that fosters a responsible data economy and delivers sustainable societal development and value,” says Areti Kampyli of Alice.si as we speak about their project collaboration in the DLT4EU accelerator programme.
