Description of the event

Изпълнителната агенция за насърчаване на малките и средните предприятия, съвместно с Българска асоциация изкуствен интелект, имат удоволствието да Ви поканят да вземете участие в първото издание на Международна конференция в рамките на инициативата “Spinoff Bulgaria”, която ще се проведе в периода 1-2 септември 2022 г., в Международен конгресен център Бургас, гр. Бургас.

Спинофът (Spinoff) e новосъздадена компания (стартъп) с висока  добавена стойност, която се създава отделно и независимо от  съществуваща организация (университет, МСП, корпорация), и която  притежава нова стойност и нова стратегическа цел.  Спинофите са основата на икономическия растеж и иновациите. Те създават нови работни места, отключват частен капитал и стимулират научноизследователската и развойна дейност и приемането на иновации.

Събитието ще се проведе за първи път в България, като има за цел да създаде устойчива spin-off екосистема и култура, която до 2030 г. да създаде над 100 нови технологични стартъпи, произхождащи от науката, университетите или съществуващите корпорации.

Основните сектори, които ще бъдат представени по време на конференцията са информационни и комуникационни технологии, иновации, биотехнологии, изкуствен интелект, стартъп и др.

         Инициативата е създадена от Биотехнологичен и Здравен Клъстер България, Клъстер Изкуствен интелект България и Venrize ООД, с основен партньор и съорганизатор Изпълнителна агенция за насърчаване на малките и средните предприятия (ИАНМСП).

Събитието ще бъде фокусирано върху възможностите на компаниите да разширят своята мрежа, както и да се свържат с ключови международни партньори и да влязат в по-тясно сътрудничество с университетите и съществуващата научна инфраструктура.

На конференцията ще бъде акцентирано внимание върху академичния трансфер на технологии и корпоративни spin-off програми, инвестиции и иновации на ранен етап и достъп до екосистемата, новата европейска иновационна стратегия, както и ще бъдат представени добри примери за български и международни спинофи, които ще имат възможност да се представят пред инвеститорите.

Работен език на конференцията: английски.

С настоящото имаме удоволствието да Ви поканим да вземете участие в предстоящата Международна конференция в рамките на инициативата “Spinoff Bulgaria”, която ще се проведе в периода 1-2 септември 2022 г. в Международен конгресен център гр. Бургас.

При проявен интерес, следва да бъде направена предварителна регистрация на адрес www.b2bconnect.bg, на страницата на събитието в срок до 26 август 2022 г. (петък).

Участието в събитието е безплатно и се организира по проект № BG16RFOP002-2.052-0001 „Подкрепа на интернационализацията на българските предприятия чрез провеждане на търговски мисии, бизнес форуми, конференции, контактни борси и двустранни срещи“, в изпълнение на дейност 2 “Организиране в България на бизнес форуми, конференции, контактни борси и други прояви за създаване на бизнес партньорства”, финансиран от Европейския фонд за регионално развитие чрез Оперативна програма „Иновации и конкурентоспособност“ 2014–2020, по който ИАНМСП е институционален бенефициент.
