ERC grantees meet business angel network
The European Research Council (ERC) has announced that representatives of the organisation itself and nine of its funded Proof of Concept projects will take part in the European Business Angel Network (EBAN) Winter University from 16 to 18 November 2015 in Copenhagen. The event will provide an opportunity for the researchers to interact with Investors from all over the world and attract investments into their start-ups and innovative frontier research.
The EBAN 2015 Winter University is the global summit on venture finance and innovation in science, space, technology and the creative industries, gathering 300 representatives of the early stage financing industry and entrepreneurs from all over the world. The nine ERC Proof of Concept projects are amongst the 20 European start-ups attending the event.
The ERC awards the Proof of Concept grant to its grantees to explore the innovation potential of the results of their ERC-funded research. It allows ERC grantees to see their frontier research through to its applications, bridging the gap between academia and industry. The ERC has so far awarded 387 Proof of Concept grants, that is 7% of ERC-funded projects.
