ABOUT THE PROJECT

SDG-Driven Innovation Ecosystems is a practice-based international consortium comprising the Global Steering Group for Impact Investing (GSG) and affiliated National Advisory Boards (NABs) for Impact investing in Israel (IFIE), France (FAIR), Italy (SIA), and Portugal (MAZE). The project also involves ancillary partners in Central European (CEE) countries. 

Consortium members are working together to develop a roadmap for the creation of next-generation innovation ecosystems catalyzed by technology. Leveraging the rapidly expanding global impact investment market, the roadmap will serve to scale the application and financing of innovative, tech-based solutions to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. 

The consortium’s work is generously supported by a grant from the European Commission through its Horizon 2021-2027 European Innovation Ecosystems (EIE) initiative, and by the UKRI.
