Startup Europe for growth H2020 Projects (ICT33)

Scaleup4Europe’s objective is the establishment of four cross-border operating “Scaleup Labs”. The Scaleup Labs are based on the ”living lab” concept and support qualifying scaleups in achieving “Proof of Scalability”. The project partners propose to set up a Scaleup Lab in each ecosystem for a specific industry vertical that benefit significantly from Deep Tech (Smart Region, Health Sciences, Agile Manufacturing, AgTech).  The Scaleup Labs will provide deep tech start-ups with a structured open innovation approach in which they can achieve cross-border market success, through first successful collaborations with corporate customers, investors and/or public institutions.

STARTUP 3 will scout for top founding teams to identify (uptake) breakthrough innovations from deep tech verticals (i.e. built on tangible scientific discoveries or engineering/ technical advances). Then STARTUP3 will help them fine tune (upgrade) their technologies/ business models and align their value proposition to the actual market demand (the so-called Key Performance Areas – KPAs). Finally, STARTUP3 will bring together top deep tech startups/ SMEs and the most prominent corporate innovators – CVC arms, incubators and accelerators, and innovation labs (facilitated by clusters and digital innovations hubs – DIHs) with the aim of catalysing productive interaction (upscale). This catalysation is rooted towards networking of deep-tech focused players (collaborative ecosystems and open innovation), raising understanding of the benefits of head spinning deep-tech innovation, smart take off and soft-landing support.

European Startups is a two-year project aimed at facilitating informed conversation and collaboration among European tech ecosystem stakeholders to take Europe’s startup economy to the next level. At the centre of the joint venture, is the European Startups database, a definitive platform providing macro-level trends and trusted insights for data-driven policymaking, complemented with investment-grade research and inclusive events. Taking Europe’s startup ecosystem to the next level requires a clearer vision about European entrepreneurship and an informed two-way discussion between the private sector and policymakers. European Startups provides a trusted and easily accessible source of open-access intelligence to fulfil that purpose.
