EIT Manufacturing, Europe’s largest innovation ecosystem for the manufacturing industry, brings together start-ups and industry under the motto “Connecting the dots”.

While the organisation is present with three booths in hall 9 at EMO Hannover 2023, one of them, booth E34, will focus on start-ups. EIT Manufacturing is one of nine knowledge and innovation communities supported by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), a body of the European Union.

In the dedicated Start-Up Area of EMO Hannover, Hall 9 | Booth E34, EIT Manufacturing will feature 20 European start-ups from its innovation community. All teams have a proven track record in manufacturing and have gone through a thorough assessment successfully to be supported by EIT Manufacturing. Their fields of activity range from artificial intelligence to zero defect inspection. They originate from 12 European countries and bring their unique perspectives to Germany.

For two three-day periods, one from 18 to 20 September, the other from 21 to 23 September, they will showcase their innovative solutions at the collective stand.

The start-ups will not only have the opportunity to exhibit their solutions and address potential customers but will also present their technologies in an Access2Tech Europe event. This event, co-organised by the economic development agency hannoverimpuls, connects representatives from industrial corporations or small and medium-sized enterprises, who are seeking groundbreaking solutions for their challenges, with start-ups from the extensive EIT Manufacturing portfolio.

The Access2Tech Europe event will first give stage time to all participating young companies, in which they will publicly pitch to the audience at EMO Hannover on 20 September 2023 from 11:00 to 13:00 in the Innovation Forum of Hall 9 | Booth E34. After this, start-ups and industry representatives will have the chance to meet for one-to-one conversations to explore collaboration opportunities.
