Transatlantic knowledge transfer

Borderstep develops research and consulting projects that strengthen global scientific exchange, with a particular focus on Europe and the US.

This includes the SHIFT research project, which compares support systems for sustainable start-ups in Europe and the US. The main goal of SHIFT was to enable universities, incubators, business development organisations, financial institutions, design service providers and other relevant actors and intermediaries to support sustainable entrepreneurship more effectively.

In collaboration with transnational actors involved in supporting start-ups, Borderstep’s transatlantic knowledge transfer activities between the two continents bring together best-practice examples for the transformation toward a green economy.
