SPI participates in plenary meeting of ENRICH in the USA from October 4th to October 7th
ENRICH in the USA (European Network of Research and Innovation Centers and Hubs), promoted by the European Commission, supports European research and innovation actors looking to expand and strengthen their collaboration and commercialization with the USA, facilitating its access to university-centric soft-landing ecosystems.
The project’s plenary meeting took place between 4-7 October in Philadelphia and Washington, and was attended by SPI as well as other partners such as Temple University, GAC, DLR, RCSID, and NCURA. SPI was represented by Sara Medina (Member of the Board) and Susana Seabra (Senior Consultant). In this meeting, SPI presented its plans to maximize the impact of the project.
Multiple activities occurred under this plenary meeting, such as closed door activities at Temple University in Philadelphia where there was an opportunity for project partners to have interactive discussions. Towards the end of proceedings in Washington, there was also an opportunity to have an overview of NCURA.
Other relevant parts were ENRICH Funding Summit at Temple University / Ukraine Day (Hybrid).
Within this USA mission, me and my colleague Susana Seabra attended the 24th Annual Leadership Awards Gala of PALCUS at the Portugal Embassy.
SPI thanks the organizers of such this successful event, which involved important strategic discussions about the future of the project.
