RETIS-EBN Congress 2017

RETIS-EBN Congress 2017. From 5th to 7th of July 2017 with Val d'Oise Technopole in Enghien-les-Bains

In 2017, RETIS and EBN have decided to associate again in order to organize together their annual Congresses.

It is Val d'Oise Technopole, with the support of AGORANOV, who will host the EBN-RETIS Congress 2017 from 5th  to 7th of July in Enghien-Les-Bains (92).

Themes of the programme 

  • "Territories, Innovation & industrial players"

Innovation is now fully recognized as a key factor for the development of our economies and growth.

Territorial actors, in relation with new industrial partners, must create new and more collaborative, more sustainable and intelligent ecosystems in order to stimulate entrepreneurship and innovation.

The 26th EBN Congress will analyze these new concepts and develop strategies, especially with the new key players in the industrial world. The EBN-RETIS Congress will also allow members of the two networks, start-ups, innovation players and entrepreneurs to meet and exchange during the workshops and special moments of conviviality.

  •  Start'ups on the front page and "videos ecosystems" competition

For this edition, RETIS and EBN wish in particular to invite and value startups and innovative companies sourced through the innovation ecosystems represented by their members. For this purpose all participating members are invited to come accompanied by one or more of the startups of their territory (free access to the congress for the strat-up).

Also, all participants are invited to participate in a small contest of the best video "ecosystem of innovation". The videos of the finalists will be screened at the last plenary of the congress. All information about the contest is on the official website of the EBN Congress:
