The jury consists of EPoSS experts from industry and research as well as national funding organizers; they will select those submissions that can present at the forum in October (power point with up to 10 slides). After the presentation, the jury will assume the role of a potential business partner, interview the participants accordingly, and select and award prizes to the most innovative and promising ideas. In addition, the participants can approach the members of the jury as mentors to get valuable advice on how to improve the concepts and business, if necessary.
Entry forms are available at https://www.smart-systems-integration.org/event/eposs-annual-forum-2021 and must be submitted to EPoSS by August 31, 2021 (contact(at)smart-systems-integration.org). The start-ups participating in the final round will receive a certificate and a voucher to promote one of their products with the EPoSS Trademark for free.
