The INNOLABS 2nd Acceleration Programme started with a successful kick-off meeting in Madrid (November 13-14, 2018). During the event we had the opportunity to meet the representatives of all of the 24 companies awarded in the framework of the INNOLABS 2nd Open Call.
RTDI and INNOLABS partners organised a very intense and interactive event starting with a Pitch/Demo Session on the first day. During this session the participants got to know each other’s projects, in parallel with networking with hospital agents, innovation managers, investors, foundation representatives, etc.
In the second day of this event we run 2 different sessions, the R&I Project Marathon and the Innolabs Services Marathon. The R&I Project Marathon led by Eva García Muntion, consisted of an intensive course on how to be successful and get funded by the European Commission, focusing on I4SMEs. Meanwhile as part of the Innolabs Services Marathon, the INNOLABS partners presented all the services that will be provided by the consortium, such as EU funding support, IPR consultancy, Regulatory strategy, Market studies and Business planning among others, and experts answered immediate questions of the SMEs.
On the last day of the event, we also enjoyed two great Plenary Sessions where the key-note speakers, Justyna Pawłowska from Interizon FDN and Therese Albinsson from Norway Health Tech, delighted us with two talks - about IPR Issues and Regulatory Matters.
In summary, a successful event that was worth attending!
