On 26 September 2019, TETRAMAX had its yearly Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) meeting. We are happy to have welcomed three new members in the IAB this second year, Mrs. Celia Pelaz, Member of the Executive Committee, Head of Spectrum Dominance & Airborne Solutions of HENSOLDT, Mrs. Darya Yegorina, CEO & Founder of CleverBooks, and Mrs Laima Kauspadienè, CEO Sunrise Valley Science and Technology Park and Member of the Governing Board of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT).
After two years, the TETRAMAX project is running smoothly, became a well-known brand in the community and performs well in the open calls and the supporting actions such as the innovation offices. Key issues posed were mainly directed to the technology brokerage activities and how to gain partner matches, as well as how to fine-tune the online visibility of our services to SMEs and VC investors.
These issues have lead to fruitful discussions and valuable recommendations to further succeed in reaching out and helping SMEs throughout Europe.
Besides sharing the strengths and possible opportunities of the project, the industrial advisors the industrial advisors, the TETRAMAX partners, and its clients for application experiments had intense and lively discussions about the sustainability of the TETRAMAX digital innovation hub and how it could be managed. The advisors emphasized the importance of a revenue strategy. The contributions of the industrial advisors are of utmost importance to the success of the project.
In the afternoon, many interesting discussions followed the presentations of the TETRAMAX application experiments.
It resulted in a very inspiring day for all participants and we got some nice reviews:
