SmartEEs partners at EBN Congress 2020

Over the past two days SmartEEs partners took part in the EBN Congress with a dedicated booth. The 2020 EBN Congress ‘’Regional Ecosystems shaping European Innovation’’ was a two-day online event featuring key actors of the innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem. The event was fully hosted on the virtual event venue, from 3-4 November 2020. 

Today, Europe’s innovation ecosystems are being tested by extreme circumstances. Standing with their member companies and their ecosystem actors, EU|BICs have been acting responsive, and are willing to lead with bold action on digitalisation, innovation and sustainability. In this context, deepening EBN community is more vital to our future than ever before.

The 2020 EBN Congress brought together all kinds of exceptional innovators to exchange ideas, foster co-learning, and understanding and on a wide range of subjects – to provoke forward-thinking on local/regional/EU strategies for boosting entrepreneurial innovation.

Don’t miss IMEC webinar: SmartEEs2 Open Call

We are happy to invite you to a seminar to tell you more about the SmartEEs2 project and its open call in January 2021.

SmartEEs2 is an original European acceleration program dedicated to helping innovative companies digitise their businesses thanks to flexible and wearable electronics (FWE) testing, experimentation and manufacturing support.

How do we do it? We open a Call for Application Experiments and invite all interested companies, satisfying the criteria, to submit their application experiment proposals. The selected companies are awarded support in line with our Call requirements and the others and welcome to re-apply their ideas and / or to enter the SmartEEs Community and benefit from it.


Subscribe to our online seminar to help you understand exactly how the project works. You’ll hear about its ins and outs as well as how you can benefit.

SmartEEs program closing, but SmartEEs2 continues

With only one month to go, the SmartEEs project is slowly coming to its end after 38 month of project implementation. We are proud to have had the opportunity to select 20 innovative companies and support them to access new markets and grow their business by adopting flexible electronics in new products lines.

We are also glad to have the opportunity to continue with the successor project, SmartEEs2, where we will be selecting 47 Application Experiments (AEs) to demonstrate the transfer of flexible and wearable electronics technologies into new products / series of products, processes, business models and business opportunities.

If you are interested to know more about two projects, check out our new brochure and video.
