EPoSS Annual Forum 2022 - Start-up Award

As part of the EPoSS Annual Forum 2022, they organise a competition for start-ups and young innovators: the EPoSS Start-up Award. Companies founded after January 1, 2018 with innovative business idea, product or service and high growth potential qualify as applicants.
The EPoSS Start-up Award will take place on October 6, 2022.

The participants will present their innovations in early or mature stages of development, concepts, ideas or business cases. Pitches must relate to smart systems technologiesfor different application areas, such as manufacturing technologies, energy, mobility, flexible electronics, wearables, food, agriculture or medical technology.
The jury consists of EPoSS experts from industry and research as well as national funding organisers. They will select those submissions that can present at the forum in October. The presentation will be held as PowerPoint with 10 slides at a maximum.

After the presentation, the jury will assume the role of a potential business partner, interview the participants accordingly, and select and award prizes to the most innovative and promising ideas. In addition, the participants can approach the members of the jury as mentors to get valuable advice on how to improve the concepts and business, if necessary.
The start-ups participating in the final round will receive a certificate and a voucher to promote one of their products with the EPoSS SSI Trademark for free.
