Techinnova and its Innogrow acceleration programme make a stop in Sicily: they will participate in the seventh edition of BIAT – Borsa dell’Innovazione e dell’Alta Tecnologia, which will be held at the Palazzo dei Congressi in Taormina from 22 to 24 September 2021. RIC3D, supported by the Techinnova incubator, will also be present at the event.

The aim of the international, travelling event is to enhance the innovative potential of companies and research in the southern Italian regions of Campania, Calabria, Puglia, Sicily, Abruzzo, Molise, Basilicata and Sardinia. In particular, the event aims to promote the marketing and transfer not only of innovative or high-tech products and services, but also of intangible assets – patents in particular – through the meeting of commercial and technological supply and demand with foreign counterparts.

The event is organised by Agenzia ICE as part of the Export South 2 Plan, a programme financed with PON-FESR funds designed to support the international projection of companies with operational headquarters in the regions of Southern Italy.

The sectors of interest for the event are:

  • Biotechnology;
  • Green Economy (circular economy, renewable energy, environment);
  • ICT;
  • Innovative materials;
  • Nanotechnologies;
  • Smart City technologies;
  • Space Economy.

The BIAT 2021 event will also be an opportunity for Techinnova to meet the operators of Skolkovo Innovation Center, with whom the first contacts have already been established during the Innoprom fair held in July 2021, when Techinnova, winning the second prize during the pitch session with the COMMITMENT project, obtained an invitation to the incubation process at Skolkovo Innovation center – now a BIAT 2021 partner.
