Last week, a new edition of Startup Europe Awards was launched whithin the framework of the Transfiere forum, the largest European forum for science, technology and innovation, held at the Palacio de Ferias y Congresos de Málaga (FYCMA). These SEUAs are the Greencities Europe Awards and have several challenges. One of those challenges was the Valorisation of textile waste generated by the HORECA sector and its circular implementation.

With this challenge of the Greencities Startup Europe Awards, we are looking for the best startup with an initiative for efficiency in treating, reducing and recycling from the HORECA sector. The objective of the SEUAs is the valorisation of all textile waste from hotels, restaurant and cafeterias for the self-suffieciency of their own facilities. The technology and innovative methodology implemented and proposed must be able to propose a waste treatment system based on a circular system of reuse and exploitation of waste.

The call for these challenges was launched in the Transfiere Forum, on the 17th of February. These awards are an open innovation tool to identify disruptive startups that promote public-private collaboration and raise awareness of the importance of self-entrepreneurship as a driver of employment.

The final of this edition of Startup Europe Awards will be held in September within the framework of Greencities and S-Moving in FYCMA, and the challenges posed are committed to innovative entrepreneurship in the field of circular economy, energy efficiency and the fight against climate change. The Finnova Foundation is looking for those startups that are providing innovative solutions to the challenges of the ecological transition.
