The purpose of this event is:

  • To let Innovation Fund Denmark see the projects we have invested in.

You can expect different activities that will prepare you for the collaboration that you are about to embark on. You will also have the opportunity to learn more about other projects. Among other things you must show your project with a poster. You are not obliged to make a presentation, but to be available for anyone who would like to hear more about the project.

The poster must be brought physically to the Kick-off meeting and also sent to erhvervsforsker@innofond.dk in advance.
