Welcome to the Virtual Challenge Community (VCC)


This community was set up as part of the Erasmus+ MarbleTech project (New educational approach of innovative technologies and eco-advances in the marble industry). This community will serve as platform for the future Innovative Marble Business Idea Competition.

Around 800 persons will be reached and invited to participate in the VCC, from training and research centers working in marble quarrying and processing, universities, managers and potential ones from marble and connected industries and students getting prepared in the field.

The VCC could be joined remotely, overcoming the COVID barriers: members could take part in the “Innovative marble business idea competition” via the VCC platform, where the innovative ideas will be presented, and the 3 best projects will be selected. The selected teams will be invited to take part in the C1 learning activity, during which they can deal with companies and access laboratories to improve and finalize the ideas.

The ideas will be presented during a multiplier event. The 3 most interesting ideas will be selected and during the event the voting will be opened, the best idea will be selected, and a crowdfunding campaign will be launched to support it.

The Community will be active during all the phases of the project and also after its end, to facilitate effective involvement of relevant target groups and stakeholders during the project and exploitation of results at its end.

Let's make this community grow!
