The 10th edition of the Forum della Borsa della Ricerca was held from May 28th to 30th in Salerno, within the Campus of the University of Salerno, partner of the event. More than 250 delegates attended the 3 days, representing 65 companies.
The first day was dedicated to the opening plenary session: “From research to entrepreneurship”. Thanks to the interventions of the speakers involved, evidence was given of the importance of the contribution of researchers to business creation.
The second day focused on one-to-one meetings between groups, research doctors or spin-offs and R&D managers of the participating companies. As part of the meetings, particular attention was reserved by the Distretto Tecnologico Sicilia Micro e Nano Sistemi to the WInSiC4UP project, which received considerable interest from most of the participating companies. The third day saw the organization of the pitch session. More than 50 companies from all over Italy – spinoffs, research groups and startups – have presented their business idea to investors and companies.
At the end of the pitch day, the BdR Awards were presented by Amadori, Meta Group, SellaLab, Microcredito Italiano and G-Factor (Fondazione Golinelli), awards from the Research Scholarship designed to concretely support the participating realities and transform ideas into projects innovative.
