MATCHER is the International Open Innovation program based in the Emilia-Romagna region that aims at supporting local companies to address specific business challenges by creating strategic matches with other actors of the international innovation ecosystem, in particular start-ups and scale-ups.
The third edition is involving three types of actors: 11 selected companies from the Emilia-Romagna region, national and international start-ups and scale-ups, and all the actors from the Italian and international innovation ecosystem.
The third edition addresses challenges regarding Human Centric Innovation and they were grouped into three thematic clusters:
- PROCESS OPTIMIZATION, AUTOMATION & CUSTOMER CENTRICITY
- TRAINING TOOLS AND KNOWLEDGE SHARING
- WORKPLACE COMMUNITY, WELL-BEING AND INCLUSION
The program is made of three main points:
MATCH.POINT is the International matching program dedicated to 11 selected companies based in Emilia-Romagna and the admitted Start-ups/Scale-ups candidates to solve the companies’ challenges. Companies and solvers have about 3 months to match, connect and find opportunities to co-create solutions around shared business needs.
BIG.MATCH and FINAL.MATCH are the closing moments of MATCHER, where further matches, as well as networking with the national and international innovation community, take place.
