04 Mar BIO-ALL Portuguese Unconference at the Incubator of the University of Lisbon
On the 18th of February 2020, our KA BIO_ALL realized one unconference at the Incubator of the University of Lisbon. This event was co-organized by the Portuguese partners of BIO-ALL.
BIO-ALL is a European Erasmus+ Knowledge Alliance project with the ambition to accelerate knowledge and competences to boost efficient innovation and entrepreneurial processes in the BIOHEALTH sector, fostering co-creation and collaborative dynamics between and within relevant actors of the ecosystem (including Higher Education Institutions staff and students, Businesses, Incubators/Accelerators, Investors and other relevant stakeholders), which will underpin the development and upscaling of ground-breaking education assets, methodologies and schemes, stepping up the responsiveness of the Higher Education Institutions education supply to the current and future market pull for supporting entrepreneurship in the sector.
The program was dynamized with a set of enthusiastic interventions:
14:30 – 15:15 – Session 1: BioHealth Innovation & Entrepreneurship State of Play (Dina Pereira – Manager UBIMEDICAL)
15:15 -16:00 – Session 2: BioHealth Accelerator Draft (Sofia Fernandes – Director of projects & Marketing at BGI)
16:00 – 16:15 – Coffee Break
16:15 – 17:00 – Session 3: Opportunities within the EU for 2020 – EIT HEALTH (Inês Matias – EIT Health InnoStars Business Creation Project Manager)
17:00 – 17:45 – Session 4: A war story from a BioMedical Startup (Fadhil Musa – CEO Delox)
This event was structured in a very dynamic way as a participant-driven open space for debate where participants had the chance to contribute to the discussions and to add topics of their interest, thus building knowledge and sharing experiences. For our KA this was of crucial added-value as it will be used to complement our visions in the design of the next outputs of the project.
This unconference involved representatives from the academic sector, incubators and accelerators, industry, startups, and investors.
