greenApes has always been actively involved in co-funded Research & Development projects. These projects provide great opportunities to grow and improve: we work on technological and social innovation actions, with great attention to psychological and behavioral models.
At the moment, greenApes is a consortium partner in the following projects:
PS LIFESTYLE - Co-Creating Positive and Sustainable Lifestyle Tool with and for European Citizens
This project includes a series of actions aimed at raising awareness among citizens about their environmental impact, providing quick access and easy-to-use tools that can help them towards the adoption of increasingly sustainable lifestyles.
The project is coordinated by SITRA, the Finnish Parliament's Innovation Fund, and is spread over 8 European countries - for Italy, greenApes and Fondazione per lo Sviluppo Sostenibile are the managing partners.
Project co-funded by the European Union (H2020 - Nr. 101037342). Role: project partners.
PRATO URBAN JUNGLE
Since May 2021, the greenApes platform has landed in Prato to reward sustainable choices of citizens! The Prato Urban Jungle project aims at promoting a creative and visionary urban design to re-naturalize the districts of Prato in a sustainable and socially inclusive way. To this end, "urban jungles" will be developed: areas with a high density of nature-based solutions, immersed in the urban structure, which multiply the natural ability of plants to break down pollutants while requalifying soil and transforming decaying areas into active green hubs.
Project co-funded by the UIA program (UIA04-176 PUJ). Role: project partners.
During its years of activity, greenApes took part in several projects - at regional and European scale - that helped our growth and learning. Here below, we enlist the formal references to those projects:

Il progetto triennale SU-EATABLE LIFE (consultabile a questo link) intende dimostrare il potenziale di riduzione delle emissioni di CO2 e del consumo idrico connesso all'adozione di diete sane e sostenibili. Nell’ambito del progetto sono state realizzate una serie di attività presso mense universitarie e aziendali ubicate in Italia e nel Regno Unito, facendo uso della piattaforma greenApes per coinvolgere attivamente i cittadini europei nell’adozione di una dieta sana e sostenibile. SU-EATABLE LIFE è un progetto europeo co-finanziato dal programma LIFE (LIFE16GIC/IT/000038). Partner di progetto.
GOEASY - GalileO-based trustEd Applications for health and SustainabilitY
The GOEASY platform was created to enable services that create social and environmental value, by leveraging the characteristics of the GNSS signal (Galileo satellite constellation). As part of the project, greenApes has developed the GoPongo app, which promotes and rewards sustainable mobility: prizes for participants, lots of useful information for mobility managers, and the highest standards to protect citizens' privacy.
