The SILICE project developed an open-source platform promoting social innovation ideas and international cooperation at regional level between the EU, Israel, and India. It has tackled cross-cutting issues like gender balance and equal opportunities for women.

The project developed a two-strand training programme; one for managers and one for teachers in Higher Education Institutions. There are nine new SinnoLABs operating in India and Israel, which include teams of managers, teachers, and mentors. The SinnoLABs also include new spaces for innovation thinking and practices as well as the technology to facilitate the process, such as new computers, tablets, and 3D printers. The SinnoLABs also recruited external stakeholders from the financial and public sectors that provide grants and support to the various projects developed in the hubs.
