The STARTUP3 project and acceleration programme

Pôle SCS is proud to announce the successful launch of the STARTUP3 project. Besides accelerating deep-tech startups in Europe, STARTUP3 aims at building an ecosystem where scaleups, technology SMEs, deep-tech ventures, will be given an opportunity to bring their innovative projects into an industry. The target audience will be guided by experts from digital clusters and Digital Innovation Hubs who will support and connect them with big players, as well as select the most promising potentials.

The project is supported by a state of the art consortium staring: the clusters Pôle SCS, Latvian IT Cluster, ITC Cluster, the Greek National Documentation Center EKT, the startup studio Hola-Up, the consultancy firm InoSens, the innovative agritech compagny AGENSO.

This project is funded under the ICT-33 (Startup Europe for Growth and Innovation Radar) call of the European Commission Horizon 2020 programme.
