The first edition of the “Innoteque” conference was held in October of 2016 in Bucharest and Cluj, Romania. It was focused on the Romanian innovation ecosystem and benefited from top-level guests and speakers from the US, Israel, the Netherlands, and Romania. Building on the success, but also on the lessons learned, the organizers decided to transform Innoteque into a recurring event and also to extend the scope of the conference at the regional level. The goal of the scope extension is three-folded: to help other countries benefit from the expertise of the invited speakers, to leverage each country’s specific experience and to spur regional cooperation by facilitating business and research partnerships across the participating countries.
The event is intended for:
- innovators, researchers
- policymakers, educators
- acceleration program and innovation hub managers, entrepreneurs
- innovation managers in corporations

This track will focus the conversation on fundamental research, the needs of research institutes and the potential for their research to be transferred to the industry via technology transfer.

Track B – Bringing innovation to the world
This track will focus on the needs of innovators in order to take their innovative work to the world. The approach will be targeted on the private sector, financing and legal frameworks, as well as on the potential benefits innovators can reach by leveraging the existing networks in partner countries.
