EU projects – Technology Scouting – Business Innovation

OITBs workshop sparks inspiration and collaboration

Back in June, AMIRES attended  a closed on-site “Workshop on the Future of Open Innovation Test Beds (OITB)”. The clustering event was held as a satellite event of EuroNanoForum 2023 in Lund, Sweden, organised in the framework of our OITB projects FlexFunction2Sustain and Convert2Green.

Under the slogan “It all begins with a conversation”, the workshop gathered representatives from various ecosystems to discuss crucial issues in the OITB projects’ implementation. In order to accommodate valuable discussions, the agenda was structured in three sessions covering: experiences from first generation OITBs, best practice of collaboration between OITBs, round table for addressing specific challenges. The event was also aimed at exploring future actions that can strengthen the community and ensure the long-term viability of the ecosystem.

A condensed overview of the presentations and discussions conducted during the workshop is now available and can be found here. The key moments are captured in a short video – here.
