iNEST Meet&Drink: an afternoon of innovation and connection

On 17th January 2024, from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., the Big Meeting Room on the 7th floor of SISSA will host iNEST Meet&Drink, a networking session followed by a happy hour tailored for doctoral students and researchers. This event offers a unique opportunity to connect, share experiences, and delve into the world of innovation within the iNEST Consortium

The highlight of the afternoon will be a presentation by two guest speakers—CEOs of successful SISSA start-ups: Andrea Martini from FAST Computing and Enrico Siagri from MATERYS. Their firsthand experiences will shed light on the start-up journey for aspiring innovators. 

After their enlightening talks, the event will feature a presentation by the representatives of Cross-Cutting Activity 1 (CC1) and Spoke 9, including Prof. Carlo Bagnoli (CC1 Program Leader), Prof. Andrea Marella (CC1 Scouting Officer), Prof. Gianluigi Rozza (Spoke 9 Leader for SISSA) and Prof. Giovanni Noselli (CC1 Committee member for Spoke 9). These experts will provide valuable insights into the ongoing activities of Cross-Cutting Activity 1. 

Indeed, iNEST Meet&Drink serves as a reminder that the Spoke 9 Call for Startup Early Stage is currently open, offering a prime opportunity for students and researchers to submit their innovative projects. The Call will remain active until 15th February 2024; those who are willing to apply for it are recommended to contact the Valorisation and Innovation Office, which will provide all the information and necessary instructions concerning the protection and formal internal disclosure of business ideas. 

Join us for an afternoon of networking, knowledge-sharing, and the celebration of innovation! Be part of the iNEST community, where ideas flourish, collaboration grows, and transformative projects come to life.
