The WILL accelerator programme was launched on January 13 2023: sixteen weeks of training and coaching on issues related to running a start-up/spin-off, from legal aspects to business model & go-to-market, from investments to marketing. During the course, start-ups were able to work directly with companies and utilities to test some of the technologies, demonstrating a mutual exchange of experience and expertise in an Open Innovation approach.
