The 3rd and last STARTUP3 Innovation Challenge puts the spotlight on Artificial Intelligence, one of the key technologies of the deep-tech stage!

High-value startups from the STARTUP3 Accelerator and from the SCS Cluster ecosystem will expose their AI-integrated solutions and compete in front of key Corporations, SMEs, and academics experts in this field.

What are the STARTUP3 Innovation Challenges?

In the frame of the STARTUP3 project are organised several Innovation Challenges in the form of pitch challenges or hackathons, by the three digital cluster partners ITCLITC, and SCS Cluster. The aim is to offer deep-tech startups a spot to present their solutions in front of players of the different ecosystems and to foster emulation of companies in the same fields.
