Promote yourself through Certified Professional and test your competencies for sustainable entrepreneurship. Get free certification NOW !

For the test phase of Climate-KIC’s new certification scheme Certified Professional – the first European-wide standard to certify professional competencies – you are invited to apply for free certification before 30th June 2018: professionals with an entrepreneurship and sustainable approach to their work or business can have their relevant competencies assessed against a standard developed by leading scholars and practitioners.

An entrepreneur for sustainability in that sense not only refers to novel business initiatives, but also incorporates models of social and environmental business. The goals are development and implementation of innovative and sustainable business models – within both established and start-up organisations.  

Certification is based on evidence of how those competencies were demonstrated in projects. Successful entrepreneurs for sustainability are competent in five working areas such as identifying or generating opportunities and fostering cooperation. The frameworks have been developed in cooperation with the University of Valencia and Provadis School of International Management and Technology.  Successful certification will lead to membership in a future European “Pool of Certified Sustainability Experts”.
