Sweden – Finland joint ICT/Digitalisation project planning workshop

The Swedish innovation agency Vinnova and Business Finland organize a project planning workshop 5 February.

The event targets representatives from small, medium sized or large enterprises, universities and research institutes. Previous similar events in Stockholm and Helsinki has led to set-up of several successful industry driven European and international projects with participants from Sweden and Finland.
The goal with the event is to identify proposals for collaborative projects with a core of project participants from Sweden-Finland. Themes for projects can for example be in Information and Communication Technology (ICT), digitalization, Artificial Intelligence, Cyber Security, Digital Health, Internet of Things, Smart Cities, Electronics, Photonic Systems, Cyber Physical Systems, Smart mobility, Software-intensive Systems or 5G.
Project proposals may target the EUREKA clusters ITEA 3, Celtic-Plus, Euripides2 or EU-calls in Horizon2020, such as ECSEL JU, or the SME program Eurostars. During the event you will get information about possibilities of public funding. The event makes it possible for you to pitch project ideas, take part of other organization’s ideas and plenty of time to discuss to start building a project consortium.
