THE NEXT SOCIETY is an open community of changemakers, entrepreneurs, investors, corporates, NGOs, public and private innovation, research and economic development hubs from Europe and 7 Mediterranean countries: Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia.
It has been launched by the ANIMA Investment Network and 30 partners in 2017 with the support of the European Union.
THE NEXT SOCIETY aims at mobilising, promoting and reinforcing innovation ecosystems and economic development in the MENA region.
THE NEXT SOCIETY supports the emergence of talents and innovative leaders who will drive the next trends and usages by targeting start-ups, clusters and technology transfer offices to accompany their development. We place the private sector in the driving seat of innovation strategies.
THE NEXT SOCIETY echoes an inclusive philosophy based on corporate social responsibility, because value creation is also about being inclusive and impact-driven.
THE NEXT SOCIETY has launched a four-year action plan (2017-2020), co-funded by the European Union up to 90% for a global amount of EUR 7.8 million, which impacts 4 levels of the innovation ecosystems:
- Improve policy frameworks
- Foster start-up successes
- Promote and internationalise clusters
- Accelerate technology transfer towards the enterprise
