This program includes a series of Bootcamps in Taiwan (Taipei), British Columbia (Vancouver) and in the French Alps area (Grenoble), with dedicated masterclasses introducing the candidates to the local ecosystems in each country, immersion into the local incubators, connections and ad hoc support for innovation via industrial partner contacts.
This first year of the project will include validation of the program, testing of the advantages and/or bottlenecks and study of the expansion to additional partner international ecosystems in Asia, North America and Europe, on a long-term basis.
