The Collider 2019-2020

 Beyond Data challenge for sustainable future

The new edition is here!

Programme in a nutshell

For the new edition, The Collider selected 15 best deep-tech projects that solve industry challenges marked by companies that collaborate with the programme. We reached out to reputable universities and research universities to find tech solutions that fit into this year “Beyond Data” edition.  After securing scientific know-how, we launched an open call to international entrepreneurial community to identify top CEOs and COOs that want to join the programme.

Talent is a key point for a startup success, that is why we have designed a process that allows us to learn more about the candidates and their backgrounds to find a perfect match between the entrepreneurs and scientific teams.
