Sibiu Innovation Days 2020

Thursday, November 26, 2020

Sibiu Innovation Days has emerged from the desire to bring closer academia, businesses and decision makers. The event closely follows the successful model of Cluj Innovation Days, which has proven over the years to be a platform among all the main stakeholders in the Cluj wider region interested in bringing innovation in many aspects of their activities.

The first edition of Sibiu Innovation Days is co-organized by University Lucian Blaga in Sibiu, (through Hasso-Plattner Knowledge Transfer Institute) and by Cluj IT Cluster and will be held during November 26th and 27th, in conjunction with the "The Researchers Night 2020".

The format of the event will include three sections:

  • Conference in the form of panels (S1)
  • Hackathon for students (S2)
  • Session of innovative projects developed by students (S3).
This year’s edition of Sibiu Innovation Days is hopefully the first episode of an equally successful series of events that will consolidate the position of Sibiu City as an emerging innovation center, with impact in shaping the economic and social vitality of the entire region.
During the two days of the conference we will be exploring, with the guidance and expertise of our invited speakers, the process of digital transformation and how this can help our community of students, researchers, business and decision makers to add value to everything we are doing. The event is looking to strengthen the collaboration among all these stakeholders while also improving the way in which we understand and use the innovative services available in Transylvania and the Sibiu region. The conference will also highlight current research and development concerns of companies in the area, will bring increased visibility for Hasso-Plattner Knowledge Transfer Institute at the “Lucian Blaga” University of Sibiu, and will create new opportunities for collaboration among those participating.
