NOVExport at South Summit

Thanks to the Madrid Hub, managed by the Carlos III University of Madrid, Novexport has been present at the great event to promote the entrepreneurship ecosystem in Spain, SOUTH SUMMIT, held between October 5-7 in Madrid.

South Summit was born in 2012. At the time, the economic crisis had darkened the business outlook in Spain, so they grew up with a strong belief: that the entrepreneurial spirit would be the driving force to heal the economy. This is why their objective was (and still is) very clear: to be the reference hub that shapes the future via initiative, entrepreneurship, open innovation and business opportunities.

Promoting the green economy aligned with the commitments of the European Green Deal and the UN SDGs is the pillar of this event, and Novexport has been present to promote the acceleration program towards innovation that we offer to start-ups in our territory. This program is designed to start ups that want to grow digitally (data) and sustainably using all the information provided by satellite data and technologies.

Gaia takes part in the UPV/EHU summer course “Projects, challenges and opportunities of the Euskadi-New Aquitaine cross-border blue economy and its contextualization in the Atlantic arc”

This course is focused on the identification and networking on innovation and new technologies for the ocean sector. The ocean is one of the strategic sectors of the Novexport project  as the blue economy is being configured worldwide as a space of opportunities for growth and sustainable competitiveness.

From the vision of contributing to the development of the blue economy of the transboundary coast and with projection to the Atlantic Arc as a basin of opportunities in training, research and to promote employability oriented to sustainability and with high value in knowledge, the SMEs of Novexport project will be able to acquire tools to work together  with universities, administrations, other organizations, etc., to be active agents in the configuration of opportunities in research, innovation and training and in the development of blue employability in our territory and extrapolate it to the project´s target market, Latin America.

In addition to this, this Summer Course aims to be a contribution to make visible projects and initiatives and to co-create scenarios that inspire new collaborations and projects in the environment of the blue economy.
