The event I'd been looking forward to all year took place on October 21: the third edition of the Regional Innovation Fair.
After a series of presentations by Romanian and international experts, it was time for the audience to meet the finalists of the Regional Innovation Competition, organized with the support of the Enterprise Europe Network. These included a portable environment monitor, a platform for ultrafast business software application development, an automated projection system, a hybrid photocatalytic-photovoltaic system for converting solar energy to electricity, etc.
Later on, there was a brokerage session, where innovators and entrepreneurs in the West Region had a chance to meet representatives of companies and research organizations from many other countries, such as Estonia, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Norway, and Serbia, to explore possible cooperation opportunities.
Just like last year, two interpreters were signed for the event, and I was honoured to be one of them.
