Diego Pavia, Chief Executive Officer of KIC InnoEnergy, explained:
“A truly sustainable energy sector needs new products, new solutions and new services. But transforming the spark of an innovation into a successful and marketable product can be a long and complex journey. Technical expertise, commercial awareness and access to a variety of skills and resources are critical in order turn a concept into reality.
“KIC InnoEnergy’s Call for Innovation Proposals helps to address the challenges that many innovators face in bringing their concepts to market and to shorten the journey from lab to launch. Crucially we provide the investment, as well as partnerships and commercial skills, that are so often lacking and without which many concepts would never make it off the drawing board. Our job is to help develop innovative products, services and solutions that have high commercial potential and by doing this we are expanding the circle of innovation in Europe’s energy sector.”
KIC InnoEnergy will be hosting a webinar on the Call for Innovation Proposals 2016 and its application processes on Friday 29th January 2016 at 13:00 (CET).
