The event organized by Sipro in collaboration with the Technopole of the University of Ferrara on October 30th was a great success. The main objective of the event, in addition to making known the structures that host work groups, innovative start-ups and young and dynamic companies, was to ‘create the opportunity to be known, to present their own business idea or entrepreneurial reality and above all “networking”, sharing ideas and ideas, as well as creating new synergies for future collaborations’ – as underlined by Chiara Franceschini, Head of European Design, Relations with the University of Ferrara and SIPRO incubators and by Paola Goldoni, Manager of the Technopole of University of Ferrara.
After a brief visit to the business incubator, owned by the Municipality of Ferrara and managed by SIPRO, and the Technopole, those present had a few minutes to talk about their mission and their idea in the “Pitch moment” dedicated to them .
For SIPRO there were: ARDA Solutions, Astolfi Engineering, BM Assemblaggi, IN4TECH and WAMO Studio.
For the Technopole, 2 spin-offs of the University of Ferrara, NEA and HELIX PHARMA and two research groups participated: one from the MechLav lab with a focus on ICT technology and the other coordinated by Prof. Michele Bottarelli of the TEKNEHUB lab, with focus on energy efficiency in industrial and residential buildings.
