The event aims at building bridges between the Green Tech innovation ecosystems in both the European Union and Arab Countries by creating connections among the three critical stakeholders in such innovation ecosystems: top researchers, driven entrepreneurs and smart capital investors.

At “Fostering EU – Arab Countries Innovation in Green Tech: Connecting Minds, Scaling-up strategies and Funding”, we are bringing together high-level political bodies, stakeholders, researchers, innovators, start-ups, venture-capital investors and deep-tech companies from the European Union and Arab Countries to discuss the green technologies that can make a significant positive impact, notably in the field of smart green and energy-efficient cities and climate adaptation.
