We are part of DETECT!

The DETECT! Consortium aims to establish an innovation ecosystem by connecting European universities and partners in deep tech and entrepreneurship. By 2030, the project envisions transforming participating HEIs into hubs of deep tech talents with entrepreneurial skills, providing solutions to societal challenges. The focus is on creating a one-stop-source for deep tech innovation, offering comprehensive support services and fostering cooperation between academia, industry, and third-sector organizations. The project will implement entrepreneurial training programs, mentorship schemes, and technology transfer improvements. The inclusion of FabLabs, makerspaces, and third-sector partners will enrich the training, while promoting economic and societal impacts. Additionally, the project contributes to peace restoration in Europe through its partnership with Ukraine.
