We are happy to invite you to the 3rd Corporate Challenge event. PITCCH — the Pan-European Open Innovation Network — has reached its third round of corporate challenges already. In the previous rounds, we saw some very nice open innovation projects with large enterprises such as Signify, SPIE, Electrolux, APTIV and Siemens Energy. It is time for the online kick-off event for a brand-new round of innovative challenges by large corporations for SMEs. The event will start with an inspiring speaker on Open Innovation, showcase an open innovation project made possible by PITCCH, feature an update about PITCCH, and reveal the new corporate challenges, closed off with a Q&A session with the panel of corporations.
