International matchmaking during STERN-Forum
30.04.2014 International matchmaking during STERN-Forum
On the 29th of April the STERN-Forum "Innovation and biomaterials" took place at the "Haus der Wirtschaft" in Stuttgart. The event focused on the projects Biomat-IN and IN2LifeSciences and attracted 46 participants from France, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Denmark.
In the plenary sessions the three key-speakers addressed the topic “Innovation and Biomaterials” from different perspectives:
* Professor Boccaccini: "Biomaterials in Bone Tissue regeneration and biofabrication: advances and challenges"
* Dr. Peters: „Biobased Materials for a sustainable industry of the 21st century“
* Dr. Akra: „Clinical Data Requirements in Europe“
During the STERN-Forum visitors were given the possibility to do some effective matchmaking/networking and to visit the regional entrepreneurs' exhibition. Joline, Amedrix, Bentley Innomed, HB Technologies, Rollerwerk and the Fraunhofer IPA presented their know-how and had one-on-one meetings with the participants.
During the Entrepreneur-Pitching-Session seven entrepreneurs from five partner regions had the chance to present their own company. They could introduce their technology solutions through an offer, or their technology needs through a request.
The event was supported by Interreg IVB.
