EIT day aims to raise awareness and promote EIT, its KICs (Knowledge Innovation Communities) in Spain and their activities, mainly focusing on the impact that these KICs have in their fields and the opportunities they can provide to different entities.
EIT Urban Mobility will participate with the rest of the KICs in Spain, representing the most significant innovation ecosystem in Europe on urban mobility issues, describing the impact and opportunities provided by this public-private partnership of reference in Europe. Daniel Serra, IH South Director, will represent EIT Urban Mobility in this event.
EIT Day is a half-day event where representatives of each one of the KICs will explain their offer and their potential collaborations with different entities: from start-ups, entrepreneurs, SMEs and large companies, to universities, research centres and more! The event will include the participation of the Secretary General for Innovation, Teresa Riesgo, who is also a member of EIT Headquarters. She will present a keynote speech highlighting the impact of EIT in Europe and its future as a catalyst for innovation in the EU.
In addition, each one of the existing KICs will present their activity and explain the impact that their programmes and actions are reaching. A round table with the 8 representatives will follow these presentations, discussing the present and future relevant challenges. The recently appointed new EIT Representatives in Spain, Guillermo Álvarez and Almudena Agüero, will also present the strategy from Spain in EIT, as well as the new calls for new KICs in the future.
EIT Day will take place on 21 October in the Assembly Hall (Salón de Actos) of the Ministry of Science and Innovation, in Madrid, Spain.
