Applications are officially open for Business Meets Innovation, the startup contest of the Italian-German Chamber of Commerce (AHK Italien) in which Innogrow – together with the Techinnova incubator – is a Hub Partner.
It is therefore time to get into the thick of the contest!
German multinationals Boehringer Ingelheim, Robert Bosch, Italcementi, and Siemens have launched four Technology Challenges, which you can apply for starting from July 12, 2022:
- Challenge #1 – Boehringer Ingelheim: NO NEED FOR RE-WORK. ACCURACY FIRST! (Predictive Sales Analytics);
- Challenge #2 – Robert Bosch: DYNAMIC A.I. PARKING SPACES (Smart Parking);
- Challenge #3 – Italcementi: MATERIALS FROM DEMOLITION: THE NEW FRONTIER OF URBAN MINING FOR THE CONSTRUCTION SECTOR (Circular Economy);
- Challenge #4 – Siemens: ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY IN THE ICT SECTOR – IDEAS AND NEW MODELS TO REDUCE CARBON FOOTPRINT (Digital Sustainability).
Detailed descriptions of the Technology Challenges and a recording of the launch event with Challenge presentations by project contact persons are available on the website.
Until Oct. 12, start-ups, spin-offs, innovative SMEs, and research groups can apply for one or more projects, proposing their solution and thus competing for the title of overall winner of the initiative.
During the application period, applicants will also have the exclusive opportunity to participate in two webinars (one in late July and one in mid-September), in the presence of the Top Players, where they will be able to ask questions directly to the project contacts. Once registered, you will have automatic access to the in-depth webinars.
