iBCN – Workshop (July 2014)
iBCN is a joint initiative by IESE Business School and Smart Partnership, with the support of the Municipality of Barcelona. The objective of iBCN is to promote a collaborative ecosystem of local technological companies with a high innovation component; to make the best of all potential synergies that can arise among them or individually; and to frame them in an international quality reference brand through Horizon 2020 and other programmes offered by the European Commission. The workshop attended a variety of technology-oriented companies, among which Telefónica, M2M Cloud factory, IDCARE, IGRID, EIXOS, and Kernel Analytics.
Part of the initiative was a detailed break-down of the CloudOpting project at a proposal level, which Smart Partnership presented as a successful roadmap towards EU funding.
