From January 29th to 31st, 2024, the EXCITE consortium including one representative from PEER Group GmbH embarked on a three-day business mission to explore the Mazovian region around Warsaw.

Mazovia Cluster ICT (MCICT), serving as a key national cluster, played a pivotal role during the mission hosting the EXCITE delegation. The three-day agenda featured a mix of informative sessions, company visits, and networking opportunities. Highlights included start-up presentations at the MCICT office, site visits to CEZAMAT, Energy Clusters Network (ECN) and the Mazovian Energy Agency as well as discussions at various locations, providing a holistic view of Mazovia's innovation ecosystem.

Visionary companies such as Viva Drive, Solhotair Technology, Arvena, Mywallet, Masta Solutions, and GLP took the stage, showcasing their expertise in fields ranging from smart mobility solutions to cutting-edge technologies in renewable energy.

The mission's agenda also included site visits to prominent institutions.
