e-pitching of innovative solutions to support European public & private procurers against COVID19

In response to the current sanitary crisis, EIC Accelerator and ICLEI Europe will organize an online market engagement event. 

The e-pitching aims to connect public and private procurers from the health sector with EIC companies providing medical supply, such as personal protective garments, medication, test kits, respiratory machinery as well as innovative technologies, for example tele-medicine, remote solutions, artificial intelligence for date analysis and prediction. 

The overall idea is to have a first e-pitching and co-creation event for the fourth week of April with at least 10 European procurers and 20 to 40 EIC companies. Non EIC companies may be accepted in case they provide complementary solutions. The exact date and time is still to be determined.

If this opportunity is of interest to you, please get in touch with Rafael Hirt - rafael.hirt@iclei.org.  

The European Innovation Council (EIC) can connect public buyers with innovation needs with the community of more than 5000 top innovative SMEs and start-ups. All suppliers go through a demanding selection procedure and received EIC funding.

ICLEI Europe supports partnership building between the EIC Community members and public procurers interested in working with EIC SME’s; and manages the on-boarding of private and public procurers interested in working with innovators on the EIC Community Platform and motivate their active participation in the EIC Community.
