Striving to expand our network of parties working at the intersection of entrepreneurship and finance, we are happy to announce that over the past semester we have established new synergies with three additional projects:
Funded under Horizon-2020, XR4ALL is an initiative by the European Commission to strengthen the European XR (eXtended Reality) industry. Interactive technologies such as Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) are set to transform the ways in which people communicate, interact and share information. The XR industry is now at a stage where technology becomes accessible and allows market introduction. However, the European XR scene is fragmented and there is a risk that foreign competitors dominate the XR market. XR4ALL is thus designed to forge a competitive, sustainable XR-tech ecosystem in Europe, with the following main objectives: 1) Create a pan-European (XR-tech) community; 2) Discover existing EU XR technology; 3) Develop a research agenda; 4) Award grants for innovative technology projects; 5) Increase investments & tech transfers to help products reach market.

The mission of the Horizon-2020-funded Go2Space-HUBs project is to secure the creation and up-scaling of European businesses, offering technology and services in and from the space-sector, ensuring value creation and innovation through cross-fertilization, training and locally owned and driven networks and initiatives that connect effectively with existing EU initiatives. This will be achieved through the creation of three new Space Hubs in Madrid, Tallinn & Coimbra strengthening local entrepreneurship/business ecosystems & networks.
