Future Tech Week sessions at Research and Innovation Days  - EIC Hub programme 


The European Research and Innovation Days 2020 will take place from 22 to 24 September. A hub dedicated to the EIC and all its different aspects will characterize the three days. See the programme here and register to the event.
 
The sessions entitled “Voices from the future: Pathfinder stories, people, visions”, organized in the frame of the Future Tech Week, will showcase EIC Pathfinder results from research to their exploitation into the market, through the valuable Keynote speech from Nobel Laureate Professor Edvard I. Moser (GRIDMAP), interview to the EIC Programme Manager Iordanis Arzimanoglou, the Keynote speech by Prof. Jerzy Langer - EIC Pilot Advisory Board member. Several roundtables will discuss about EIC Pathfinder future paths in a wide range of technological trends. 
 
Major EIC Pathfinder results are already available, and will be showcased during the whole week via the Future Tech Week website.
 
There’s so many ways for projects to participate ranging from videos, to online events, sharing documents and publications or via social media posts using #EICFTW.
Voices from the Future: Biotech and Health
Sept. 22nd, 09:45 - 12:30 CET


The session will showcase EIC Pathfinder projects results in biotech, health and medicine.

A keynote speech from the neuroscientist Nobel Laureate Professor Edvard I. Moser (GRIDMAP FET project) and will be followed by a discussion on the topic of extracellular vesicles by Antonella Bongiovanni, Maria Goreti Ferreira Sales, Paolo Bergese, Sepio Vainio, Marcella Chiari, Marina Cretich from the cluster of Pathfinder projects: Ves4usevFOUNDRYINDEXMARVELBOWGLADIATORMindGap.

The opening Keynote speech by Prof. Jerzy Langer, EIC Pilot Advisory Board member, will explain the evolution of the FET programme into the EIC Pathfinder and its role in supporting innovation.

Following, the cluster of Pathfinder projects in the area Global System Science, with the participation of Angel Sanchez (IBSEN), Paul Lukowicz (CIMPLEX), Stefano Battiston (DOLFINS) and Emanuela Merelli (TOPDRIM)  will show the experience to study Global challenges.

The session will include videos on more Pathfinder projects.
 
The session will be hosted at HUB 8 – European Innovation Council on September 23rd, 11:30 - 13:30.

Voices from the Future on Women in STEM: Examples in environment, IT and robotics
Sept. 23rd, 15:00 - 17:15  

 
The session will focus on the contributions from female scientists involved in Pathfinder projects.

Rachel Armstrong will present her project LIAR on Microbes & Urban Sustainability, and Clivia Sotomayor Torres (PHENOMEN) and Cecilia Laschi (OCTOPUS) will share their perspectives on the involvement of women in the Pathfinder projects, addressing areas capable to create new foundations of science-enabled innovations.

The session will include videos on more Pathfinder projects.
 
The session will be hosted at HUB 8 – European Innovation Council on September 23rd, 15:00 - 17:15.

A2EIC Webinar "Exploitation opportunities in EIC Pathfinder FET" 
 
You are invited to look at the Info-day Webinar on the topic “Exploitation opportunities in EIC Pathfinder FET”,  organized by the Access2EIC National Contact Point Network, in collaboration with the European Commission.   

The event presented the latest FET Innovation LaunchPad Call for Proposals, relevant results and success stories in FET Innovation LaunchPad and EIC Transition to Innovation Activities.

“Voices from the Future - 30 years of Breakthrough Technologies in Europe” Publication 

A new booklet has just been published to celebrate the past 30 years of the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) programme and its future as Pathfinder for Advanced Research in the European Innovation Council (EIC). Outstanding interviews will give us profound insights about the European funding programme, its connection with National research priorities, and a look at its evolution in the fully-fledge EIC Pathfinder.
