So how can you make sure not to miss them? Start by registering to the event if you haven’t yet. The event is on invitation only so check out your mailbox; the event registration code is in your email invitation. The event is primarily designed for selected participants of the European Innovation Council (EIC) pilot programmes (SME Instrument, Fast Track to Innovation and FET-Open, EIC Horizon Prizes), which will receive their invitations as a priority. As places free up we’ll consider other invitees.

 

The best way to attract attention is to participate in one of our pitching contests in front of the Jury of investors. When registering you can apply to one of the pitching sessions: life science, medical devices, software, Industry 4.0, new materials, mobility, green energy, Food/Agritech. Places are limited so be sure to sell your case well!

 

Then download our event App! All sessions, registration, matchmaking, meet ups, workshops will be available to you via the app as well as information on the location and where sessions are being held. You will be able to connect with the others and book bilateral meetings in the application. Otherwise catch them during workshops and informal networking activities.
