Welcome to EU.FFICIENT, a pioneering initiative poised to revolutionise co-creation practices across Europe. At the heart of our project lies a commitment to fostering vibrant Communities of Facilitators dedicated to advancing co-creation methodologies through targeted training, extensive networking, and immersive hands-on experiences. EU.FFICIENT is designed to empower Expert Facilitators with tailored resources and a dedicated platform, facilitating seamless access to cutting-edge tools and methodologies. Through our innovative approach, we aim to bridge sectoral divides and enhance collaboration among industry, academia, and the public sector. Our platform, initially piloted across four thematic communities – Advanced Manufacturing, HealthTech, Mobility, and AI/Digital – embodies our vision for a more efficient and effective co-creation landscape. Join us as we embark on this journey to redefine collaboration in Europe and beyond.


The main objective of EU.FFICIENT is to create, pilot and validate Communities of Expert Facilitators to improve co-creation processes in Europe, with a focus on personalised training, networking and hands-on learning.


EU.FFICIENT will connect at least 2,000 Expert Facilitators by the end of the project representing 150 Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and Research and Technology Organisations (RTOs), 80 companies / Small and Medium-sized Enterprise (SMEs), and 50 public organisations, all of them from 18 different Member States and at least 8 Widening and Associated Countries. By 2030, EU.FFICCIENT is expected to involve 8,400 Expert Facilitators from 1,220 different organisations, including 600 HEIs and RTOs, 250 companies / SMEs, and 125 public organisations, among other stakeholders.
