The 26th-27th May 2016, MED-SPRING organizes in Valenzano (Italy), hosted by CIHEAM-IAMB the event: “3rd Euro-Mediterranean Brokerage and Venturing Event on Research and Innovation“, a regional Euro-Mediterranean event where companies, organizations, entrepreneurs and researchers from different EU and Mediterranean countries participate with the aim of facilitating bridging between research and innovation through the creation of private-public and research-enterprise partnerships. Four “Netkiters” will attend to the event: Selmi Aida (Bio Wonder – Tunisia), Basem Sameh (Green Battery – Egypt), Anoua El Guetiti (Soghyen – Tunisia) and Ahmed Mahmoud (GLabs – Egypt).
Coming to its third edition, and building on the previous events (in Cairo on February 2014 and in Berlin on February 2015), also aims at activating relevant actors in the Mediterranean region , helping them to enhance clustering for innovation involving young entrepreneurs from the Mediterranean Partner Countries (MPCs). The brokerage event will stimulate the participation of representatives of identified innovation clusters as well as ideas carriers from different European countries. Existing regional networks or cluster initiatives will also be involved in the event to help triggering local to regional commercial-technology partnerships.
More than 60 participants (young entrepreneurs/researchers, start-ups, researcher institutions, tech-driven enterprises, SMEs and other relevant private/public potential investors/networks) from Euro-Mediterranean Countries will meet in Valenzano (under the CIHEAM-IAMB premises) to share their interest and offers for cooperation as well as to get funding opportunities. Among them, about 24 young entrepreneurs and researchers are invited to present their innovative ideas.
The preliminary event programme is available here.
