The NewSkin OITB team look forward to participating in INDtech 2024 next week 3-5 June Namur Belgium and in the satellite event "OITB Workshop: A collaborative strategy for the commercialisation of OITB services" on 6 June (09:00 - 16:00 CEST). 

INDtech 2024 - Science and innovation to empower EU industrial resilience and economic security. This EU flagship event brings together relevant stakeholders from research, startups, SMEs, industry and policy to discuss state-of-the-art technological challenges, ambitious European industrial initiatives, and future trends in the field of industrial technologies and consider how to better leverage and valorise research for a greater impact on European industry competitiveness.  

On June 5th, Session 2 ‘Open Innovation Test Bed (OITB): A New Kid on the Block’ is chaired by Policy Officer Ferrandez Antonio from the Industrial Transformation Unit at the DG Research and Innovation of the European Commission, and responsible for the Open Innovation Test Beds policy and the Hubs for Circularity policy. Antonio is joined by Franz Pirker Business Developer at i-TRIBOMAT OITB; Quentin Pankhurst Co-founder Resonant Circuits Limited - test-case partner in Safe-N-MedTech OITB; Paula Galvao Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory -membersin flexfunction2sustain OITB and safe-n-medtech OITB; Ulla Forsström VTT & coordinator INN-PRESSME OITB; and Dominik Sobczak Deputy Head of Unit Industrial Research, Innovation and Investment Agendas at DG-RTD, European Commission.

NewSkin OITB project manager Carlos del Castillo will be present at INDtech2024, find him at session 2 ‘Open Innovation Test Bed (OITB): A New Kid on the Block’ on June 5th, &/or at the OITB workshop on June 6th where he will present in Session 2: A vision towards joint service portfolios for specific markets - around setting up a common perspective among all OITBs through their Single Entry Points (SEP) - OITB strategic alignment across key value chains; supporting each other; identifying synergies for effective collaborative joint service portfolios; and making access to state-of-the-art technology infrastructure and expertise across OITBs easier - accelerating innovation and meeting emerging market needs.
