InnoDays Innsbruck

At the InnoDays, everyone comes together to create something new – no matter if you are an entrepreneurial student, designer, engineer or business leader. The InnoDays is where you’ll turn ideas into prototypes in 48 hours. Our focus for the Innsbruck edition is on the topic of mobility.

Given the uncertainty around the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ll decide on April 15 whether  (1) we’ll  bring the InnoDays Vienna online (if our virtual InnoDays Berkeley experiment goes well), (2) postpone the event, or (3) follow through.

Special Prize

The winning team of each challenge will win a 3-day trip to Brussels. This is a unique opportunity to visit the European Parliament on a guided tour and exchange with EU delegates. During a networking event in the Euregio office you have the chance to pitch your idea to selected stakeholders with the aim to turn your idea into action. Possibly we’ll visit the Austrian Permanent Representation in Brussels. You’ll also have time for private sightseeing in Brussels. The prize is non-exchangeable, non-transferable, and is not redeemable for cash or other prizes.
