Building on the success of TEDxBinnenhof, Ideas From Europe (IFE) was launched in 2015 with the aim to find innovators with potential solutions to global challenges throughout Europe, put them in the spotlight, and connect them to relevant stakeholders. The IFE-approach worked: Europe’s game-changing innovators were identified and interconnected in IFE’s ecosystem. In 2017 IFE announced its new approach, moving from the incidental scaling of one entrepreneur or one solution to a systematic scaling approach for the entire comprehensive innovative solution with economic and societal impact. Check out our themes to get some more feeling with how it works.
IFE is an independent program supported by the Dutch Government, the European Commission and also by public and private partners in 28 EU Member States. The IFE programme is formally run by the Sustainable Scale-up Foundation (SSF) based in the Netherlands.
SSF maintains a lean approach to a organisational structure and works primarily with external experts. Our team currently consists of strategists and experienced professionals in the areas of governance, policy making, data intelligence, platform technology, (social) media, (digital) communication, business development and event management.
IFE uses the Value Track approach provided by the Value Track Network Ltd. For more information click here.
