July 2021, India: The EU-India InnoCenter programme, which is financed by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation framework programme, is launching its first “Explore & Validate Program” on February 18, 2021, after a successful launch on February 18, 2021.
Through this programme, the EU, one of India’s top commercial partners and foreign investors, hopes to bring companies from Europe and India together. This project will promote collaboration and creativity, as well as the potential for more European investment in India in the long run.
Eight such ‘Explore & Validate Programs’ will be held over the InnoCenter’s three-year lifespan, allowing 64+ European businesses to successfully bring their breakthrough technologies to the Indian market. Since its founding, the InnoCenter has enrolled over 100 European entrepreneurs from a variety of industries, including sustainability, health, and life sciences, to name a few.
The initiative aims to help European businesses learn about sector-specific prospects, laws, and best practices in India, as well as connect with important Indian players. While the entrepreneurs have been preparing for the Indian market through a series of courses, workshops, and mentorship programmes, the InnoCenter is hosting.
