The first meeting under the project was held on November 21 and the second one this year is scheduled for December 12. The deadline for submitting presentations is December 10. Ideas from all business fields, as well as at different stages of development are eligible.

Participation is free of charge. You can find the program, presentation requirements and link for participation here.
