Call for Synergy Workshops & EU-Project Exploration Activities

Does your EU-project struggle with adequately disseminating its exploitable results to industry and investors? Do you wish to discuss your project results in a community of like-minded projects and explore synergies?

The EU-day of I-Know 2013 offers you both opportunities at one event:

  • Host a synergy workshop at I-Know 2013 and bring together like-minded (EU-)projects to present and discuss project results, directions and research challenges.
  • Meet commission representatives of related units to discuss project results and get the newest developments on Horizon 2020.
  • Demonstrate your project results to approximately 250 industry participants and 250 research participants throughout the three day conference.
  • Test the exploitability of your project results by presenting them to investment organizations such as business angels austria and receiving their rating and feedback.

Synergy workshops themselves will take place
on September 4, 2013.
Dissemination and exploitation activities for the projects are planned throughout the whole conference September 4-6, 2013.

Meet investment organizations during the Poster & Demo Session on Thurday September 5, 2013.
Each synergy workshop should address one major research challenge (e.g. big data, smart media, etc.) with one project being the Hosting Project and 4-6 projects being the Participating Projects. That is, the Hosting Projects sets the agenda and invites Participating Projects to take part in the event and sets the stage for dissemination and exploitation activities.
