HELSINKI, FINLAND: From smart phones to smart industrial processes, the trend is set. Miniaturised smart systems are becoming more and more key components in our private and professional lives. They enable better telecommunications, energy efficiency, sustainable transport, fast and reliable medical diagnostics, breakthroughs in healthcare, innovative entertainment.
All industry sectors are willing to integrate them in order to propose new and innovative solutions and get a competitive advantage. Whatever the domain of activity, the market is already asking for miniaturised smart systems.
Come to COWIN Marketplace to know more about available technologies, on-going innovative projects and funding opportunities in smart systems. To optimise your innovation process, join the European network and meet with future key partners. Take the chance to access available resources and most of all to start interactions with the most suitable operational and financial resources related to your needs.
COWIN Marketplace will be composed of three events and participation is free of charge:
• An information session on “Financing major milestones from R&D to market" will gather representatives from the European Commission, from the European Technology Platform EPoSS, from the investors community and from EURIPIDES in order to provide the audience with key elements on support initiatives all along the technology value chain. (14th June 2011 from 15:00 to 17:30, Room FENNIA I).
• Personal contacts are essential for successful co-operations. COWIN is organising a matchmaking event consisting in individual meetings between technology providers, integrators and business partners in order to foster innovation and to discuss on concrete business opportunities. COWIN will give you the chance to optimise your meetings schedule according to your needs. (14th-16th June 2011, Room NORDIA).
• A posters exhibition is the actual core of COWIN Marketplace. In this common Euripides-COWIN area, innovative research results from FP6-FP7 projects but also on-going projects under the EURIPIDES programme will be given the floor to present themselves and to raise interests among the audience for further partnerships. The poster presenters will be available for questions and discussions.
