EPoSS Start-Up award

Within the scope of EPoSS Annual Forum 2019, a contest for young (Spanish) Start-ups and innovators, will take place on 17 October, 13:45-16:00. Under the working title “EPoSS Start-up Award”, the presenters will introduce their innovations (at early or mature stages of development), concepts, ideas or business cases. The pitches will have to target Smart Systems technologies for a variety of applications areas such as Manufacture, Energy, Mobility, Flexible Electronics, Wearables, Food, Water, and Agriculture.

Furthermore, the pitches will be observed by the jury, consisting of EPoSS experts from industry and research as well as national funding organisations. The jury will have a dual role for all the contestants – on the one side, it will act as mentor and provide valuable advice on how to improve concepts and business. On the other side, the jury will have a role of a potential business partner, choosing and acknowledging the most innovative and promising idea.

The contest will be moderated by Eduardo Castellano from the Faculty of Business of the Mondragon University.
