The European innovation Council (EIC) is the core instrument of the European Commission to support high tech and deep tech SMEs to scale and disrupt their market. Andreas Lymberis, Head of Sector of the EIC Accelerator Challenges, will give an overview on this unique instrument and share the rationale behind this instrument in relation to the health tech market from the point of view of the European Commission.

Nadine S. Sommerfeld: From Bench to Business

Knowledge about building startups is much more widespread these days. The increase in focus on entrepreneurship means it’s easier than ever to start a company. But do scientists make good entrepreneurs?

As chemist and co-founder and ex-CEO of P4 Therapeutics she shares her experiences of bridging the gap between academia and industry. A journey about challenges, success, failures and new opportunities.
