IMI Annual Event 2022

On February 10, IMI and its members hosted their annual event at EPFL and online under the title: “Partnerships between media companies and innovation ecosystems: results and perspectives”.

The event featured leading researchers, media/industry experts and entrepreneurs who presented the results of IMI-supported projects and shared their insights on European media innovation ecosystems. What are the mechanisms for interaction with research, industry and start-ups? How should collaborative spaces involving different types of actors and sectors be organized? How can we foster the operationalization of results by media companies at the end of an innovation round?

A total of 160 people took part in this event, many of them on site, but some also online.
