CHEST (Collective enHanced Environment for Social Tasks) is a 30 month Collaborative project co-financed with support from the European Commission through Framework Programme 7.

The aim of the project is to promote the development of  digital based innovations that have the potential to address key societal challenges. In addition to the creation of an online community platform that will facilitate the sharing and exchanging of ideas, CHEST will invest up to €2.5 Million in highly innovative ideas through the launch of two open funding rounds. Social entrepreneurs will be invited to not only propose new ideas with the potential to receive support but also evaluate and discuss the ideas of others with highest rated projects selected for funding.
