This workshop provides the participants with the opportunity to meet with Innovationsagenterne, Enterprise Europe Network, Innovayt, Teknologiudvikling, Nordic Innovators, Innovationsfonden, Gate2Growth, Innovationsnetværkene, Væksthus Hovedstadsregionen, Markedsmodningsfonden etc. Also a SME representative will share his experience in applying for EU funds.
Biopeople is present in various Reference Groups on Societal Challengeswithin the themes: Health, demographic change and wellbeing and Food security, sustainable agriculture, marine and maritime research, and the bio-economy .
Our focus is to bridge the gap between research and the market. We aim at creating a new w focus on innovation-related activities, such as piloting, demonstration, test-beds, and support for public procurement and market uptake. One of the special efforts is to engage SME’s by addressing the various challenges they face e.g. partnering across disciplines and borders.
