Innovation platform Koiné was launched by the European Union’s Interreg project ENISIE within the margins of the Malta Innovation Summit 2019, according to a press statement sent to Business Malta. The Koiné Project was created to serve as a bridge between all the realities in the Mediterranean area operating in the fields of Innovation and Social Innovation.

Available in English and Italian, the ENISIE innovation platform aspires to serve as a hub for the community of innovators where they can sell or buy products and services, expand their network, find new opportunities, exchange expertise and best practices with different types of stakeholders.

The Koiné platform aims to be an enabler for communities to stimulate, stir and disrupt businesses with opportunities for innovative services and products, eventually contributing to the shift from business with profit to business with purpose.

Registration is free of charge and open to individual professionals, organisations, companies and innovation spaces who can avail themselves to a myriad of online resources including experimental innovations services, social innovation best practices and innovation tools.

“The innovation platform was designed to support and promote a stable system of networking, encourage the exchange of services and good practices and stimulate cross-border synergies in the EU-Mediterranean region. Besides providing a potential basis for business growth, a key component of this project is to accelerate social innovation in crucial areas such as food, digital health and sustainable tourism,” said Joseph P. Sammut, Chairman and Founder of the Malta Life Sciences Park, upon the launch.
