About Us

SwitchMed Connect is a gathering of Mediterranean stakeholders to build synergies, exchange knowledge, and scale up eco and social innovations. It hosts leading start-ups and entrepreneurs, industry agents, initiatives, change agents, policy and financial institutions working on applications of productive, circular and sharing economies in the Mediterranean.

At these regional events, both macro and micro level organisations come together for cross-country exchanges, knowledge sharing and elaboration of solutions to challenges for scaling up eco innovative business models.

SwitchMed Connect 2022 is the second edition of the event under the Phase II of the programme. It will be organized within the framework of Ecomondo in Italy, on 9-10 November 2022.

The objective of the event, in line with SwitchMed II foreseen impacts, is to facilitate the uptake of green and circular economy best practices, by codifying and sharing knowledge and networking relevant ecosystem stakeholders.
