This initiative is open to entrepreneurs, individually or in teams, with innovative ideas that combine science and creativity, using KET (Key Enabling Technologies). Participants must be over 18 years old, from any nationality.
Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) are a group of technologies (micro and nanoelectronics, nanotechnology, industrial biotechnology, advanced materials, photonics, and advanced manufacturing technologies) that have a wide range of product applications with huge potential to fuel economic growth.
