ENRICH GLOBAL joins and supports the efforts of private and public organisations working together to keep the ecosystem in Ukraine strong and connected to global innovation networks. We are committed to supporting, and proposing, actions to help strengthen the Ukrainian Innovation Ecosystem and facilitate connections between Ukrainian and European Union actors and initiatives. Thus, ENRICH GLOBAL started working on “A roadmap for ENRICH GLOBAL to support Ukraine innovation”. It is planned to include their activities to support Ukrainian startups, innovative companies and other relevant actors, such as facilitation of their integration in the Horizon Europe projects and proposals, among others.
The goal is to raise overall awareness and help ENRICH GLOBAL, our partners and Ukrainian organisations identify the best way to support Ukraine Innovation in specific activities. Together we will build strong partnerships to ensure Ukraine Innovation is strengthened now and in the future!
Many citizens and organisations in Europe are generously supporting charities with cash donations to help Ukrainian families with clothes, food and medical supplies. Members of ENRICH GLOBAL are in contact with Ukrainian colleagues from the “global innovation family” who have now relocated to other countries, leaving everything behind them. Our Ukrainian colleagues are starting again in other European cities and are desperately looking for work and trying to rebuild their careers. ENRICH GLOBAL is committed to helping these professionals find work via new connections and opportunities. Thus, as a first action, ENRICH GLOBAL has launched a campaign to raise cash funds with the specific purpose of supporting Ukrainian Innovation Consultants (several are already known to us) by offering them short term consultancy contracts. The idea is that donors can fund “Innovation Consultant Expert Days”. Donations for these “Innovation Consultant Expert Days” are collected by ENRICH GLOBAL and then transferred to Ukrainian innovation consultants in the form of service contracts for consultancy missions. The objective of the missions will serve to strengthen the Ukrainian innovation ecosystem and build strong connections and opportunities for the long term.
