Innovation

Innovation is a creative, transformative process that promotes paradigmatic break, even partial, positively impacting quality of life and human development.

We want to help you transform your community, market and products, by empowering citizens and fostering happy people. Innovation is not necessarily a disruptive process, but most of all is the wish to improve, evolve and bring new assets.

It is good if innovation brings economic and financial gains but without forgetting societal gains - we can only have a strong economy or a strong business model if we are impacting on people.

So, if you are working only for society, let us help you to find the right business opportunities and models. If you are financial successful but you now want to give back, we can also assist you to find good purposes for your investment, by translating your business innovation into society gains.

In summary, we can work with you on:

  • business models and plans connected to societal challenges
  • social responsability programes
  • delivering innovation to market
  • finding the right innovation pathway for your organisation
  • preparing your team for change
  • -preparing the communities for innovation entry

Training

ILearning organizations and groups are able to create and transfer knowledge as well as modify their behaviors to reflect this new knowledge.

We develop tailor-made and highly specialized training, to different stakeholders and in diverse levels, completely adjusted to needs and goals.

We don't mean to provide padronized or common training, nor compete with training centers. SHINE will only target specific niches and shortcomings, where highly specialized or focused training contents may be provided, namely by international benchmarking, bringing different experts together.

The other target of the training services of SHINE is participating in the development of training materials, packages and tools that are connected to its areas of interest and may be a crucial instrument to the implementation of its vision.

In summary, we provide:

  • specialised and tailor-made training services
  • organisation of international expert events, public conferences or study-visits
  • training materials and tools

Capacity building

Individuals and organizations need to obtain, improve, and retain the skills, knowledge and other resources needed for evolving. But we go further, promoting social and behavioural change that leads to infrastructure and sustainable development also by understanding its obstacles.

Community capacity building intends to develop and strengthen skills, abilities, processes and resources that individuals, organizations and communities need to adapt to the emerging changes and be able to evolve and be prosperous. This imply being flexible, function-focused and open to change, having as ultimate goal  the changing needs of the population that is served or the connection with the last market trends, depending on the organisation's nature.

SHINE can help organisations or communities to:

  • evaluate their status, through holistic and thorough diagnosis on processes, teams, resources
  • present a plan for change, focused on internal evolvement, efficiency and quality
  • sketch the national and international landscape for new opportunities.

Networking

No initiative or business grows without a solid network of stakeholders, partners and reliable organisations around it. It is many times difficult for social entrepreneurs, NGOs or SMEs to know who are the right people to approach when trying to develop, disseminate, transfer or implement an innovative idea, project or solution.

Shine's team has a large network, both inside Portugal as also in the European landscape, in all the key areas we work in. We can connect you to policy makers, research & academic experts, companies, business incubators and investors, health & social care providers, patients, citizens and NGOs.

Our networking services include possibilities such as direct contacts, organisations of thematic or expert meetings, events, conferences and study visits.

Connection to major networks, national and international, and provision of updated and most relevant resources, studies and publications are also assets for you and your organisation.
