Open Innovation Forum is a program that allows companies to share their innovation challenges and get proposals from research groups and centers. Therefore, it is a great opportunity to meet the right collaborator to tackle your innovation challenges. During the first meeting of the Open Innovation Forum 2019, on April 3 at CaixaForum Barcelona, 76 meetings took place between 130 companies and solvers.

How does it work?

The second meeting will take place on July 11, 2019, at Barcelona Science Park (PCB). Once you sign up through the online platform you can either send an innovation challenge or send a possible solution. You can also check the list of participants and request B2B meetings.

The online platform will be open throughout 2019, and with the single payment of an annual fee, innovation challenges or solutions can be submitted all year long. A committee will assess these challenges and choose the most relevant ones, which will get feedback on possible solutions from Catalan innovation stakeholders and university research centers. They will also be invited to the gatherings with the problem-solvers. 

What are we looking for?

  • COMPANIES with innovation and/or development needs for new products and services,
  • RESEARCH GROUPS AND INNOVATION STAKEHOLDERS interested in applying their research in the Catalan business arena. 
...from the healthcare, medtech, food, chemistry, and materials sectors in Catalonia.
