Full Impact Potential: What are the main spread strategies moving forward? (Please consider geographic spread, policy reform, and independent replication/adoption of the idea or other mechanisms.)
After this summer we want to expand the concept of the ThinkTrain. We are going to do this in two ways: firstly, we are going to organize the ThinkTrain twice a year (summer and winter). Every period there will be multiple trains, related to different sectors (Energy, Healthcare, Food). Furthermore, an agency will be set up which will work on different challenges during the year.
Barriers: What barriers might hinder the success of your project and how do you plan to overcome them?
The barriers that might hinder the success of our project are the funding and the time-table. Since we are aiming to recruit young talents (of which some of them are still on university), the ThinkTrain needs to ride during summer, the time when some organizations are less active. A second barrier could be the funding of the first ThinkTrain. Since this is a new concept, organizations may be skeptical and not willing to invest.
