- A "best of" EIT Digital’s innovation activities and deep tech scaleups in #AgriTech, #Wellbeing, #Industry, #Infrastructure #SmartCities will showcase through an initiatory journey the impact of advanced technology on everyday life.
Deep Tech will impact the daily lives of citizens without their noticing and is already positioned as an essential element of Europe’s digital economy. EIT Digital, the European organisation at the forefront of digital innovation with strong societal impact presents for the 2017 edition of its French Innovation Day, a rich sample of its deep tech activities that will change people’s lives within a few years. EIT Digital works on European collaborative projects and supports scaleups within its accelerator in different action lines: Wellbeing, Cities, Industry, Infrastructure, and Finance.
"I am pleased to announce our Innovation Day France on the theme of Deep Tech. We want to get out of the buzzword effect and have a concrete and easy to understand approach to what Deep Tech is and what it involves in everyday life. We will present some concrete innovations in which we co-invest with our partners, to demonstrate our ability to stimulate European collaboration and prove that Europe has a bright future in innovation entrepreneurship”, explains Guillaume Toublanc, Managing Director of EIT Digital in France.
It will be possible to meet these actors that supports EIT Digital on Wednesday, December 6, 2017.
