The Enterprise Europe Network Partner Hessen Trade & Invest GmbH is organizing an online company mission for international chemistry startups.
In the open innovation process, corporates seek new ideas for promising technologies also outside their companies. Startups, the "laboratories of the future", are ideal for this, as they make a significant contribution to the industry's ability to innovate and maintain its competitiveness.
With this event, Hessen Trade & Invest GmbH wants to promote the networking of startups with established companies and corporations. The event is aimed at international startups in the fields of chemistry, biotechnology, bioelectronics, the environmental sector, sustainability, digital process management/innovation management, digital innovations on the one hand, as well as established chemical companies on the other hand.
The event consists of three agenda items:
Workshop “Corporate Insights”
On 1 October 2020, a virtual workshop “Corporate Insights” is offered on how to communicate with corporates. The workshop will provide startups with valuable tips for negotiations with industrial companies. Enterprise Europe Network partner Hessen Trade & Invest GmbH will run this workshop in cooperation with the Digital Hub (de:hub) 5-HT Chemistry & Health.
Matchmaking Event “Corporates meet Startups” @ CIEX
On 8 and 9 October 2020, a matchmaking event will be organized in the framework of the CIEX Europe 2020 conference. CIEX is an international conference for R&D and innovation experts from the consumer, industrial and specialty chemical sectors. By bringing together all players across the value chain, it offers a unique platform for participants to learn, exchange ideas, and collaborate. Startups with at least two confirmed meetings benefit from a free participation in the CIEX conference on 7 and 8 October. The matchmaking event will take place online only as the CIEX Europe 2020 conference has switched to a full virtual format this year.

Target groups are international chemical companies and corporates as well as startups from chemistry, biotechnology, bioelectronics, the environmental sector, sustainability, digital process management, innovation management and digital innovations.
Participation in all parts of the event is free of charge.
