Open Innovation for SMEs

Through the Open Innovation program designed for SMEs, companies (innovation seekers) can submit challenges in strategic sectors that students from around the world (innovation developers) will face with emerging technologies. To take part in Open Innovation programs, SMEs must submit their challenges through dedicated Call4Challenges. The partners of the CTE will select challenges based on their compliance with the CTE objectives.
Along the Open Innovation track, SMEs, together with innovation developers, are committed to evaluate innovation opportunities that will be introduced into their own entrepreneurial reality.
