THE NEXT SOCIETY is a movement aiming at reinforcing innovation ecosystems, fostering value creation and pushing forward concrete solutions for a shared prosperity in the Mediterranean and in Africa. It is carried out by an open community of economic and social organisations from Europe and the South Mediterranean countries: investment agencies, enterprises, start-ups, innovation hubs, NGOs, etc.

Launched by ANIMA Investment Network, it gathers over 300 organisations and 2,500 entrepreneurs so far. A 4-year pilot action plan co-financed by the European Union up to 7 million Euros started in 2017. It supports start-ups, clusters and technology transfer in 7 Mediterranean countries: Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Palestine, Jordan and Lebanon.




You are a company, a local authority or an investor committed to innovation and value creation in the Mediterranean? Take part in this action plan and join THE NEXT SOCIETY Club!

As a member of the Club, you will be invited to participate in THE NEXT SOCIETY events and connect with entrepreneurs who shape the future of the Mediterranean: start-ups, clusters and researchers. We also offer you three options to source solutions, accelerate your exploratory approach in Mediterranean countries and establish productive collaborations with talented entrepreneurs: challenge, meet-up/ learning visit and soft landing/ mentoring.
