09 Jan POC Venture Program 2020 deadline extended to Feb. 12th, 2020!
In order to allow many research groups to finalize the submission of their POC projects, the deadline for the submission of VV3TT 2020 POC projects has been extended from 15th January 2020 to 12th February 2020.
The VV3TT 2020 POC program targets innovation projects with a TRL (Technology Readiness Level) comprised between 3 and 5, directly stemming from Italian Universities and Research Institutes which can be driven, with an investment of up to Euro 70.000 in cash, to a significant Proof-of-Concept towards prototyping and commercialization of their product/service. In order to foster POC development, VV3TT is collaborating with a selection of Corporations which shared their innovation needs. Furthermore, the POC Venture program will sponsor an executive business and management educational program for POC proponents (see EMBAIN at MIB School of Management).
After successful completion of the POC project goals, VV3TT might decide to further invest in the NewCo stemming from the project by means of equity investments up to Euro 4M per initiative.
