The exhibition is intended for innovators, holders of business ideas who want to examine the market value of their innovation and start business, current and future entrepreneurs, young innovators, students and high school students and all those who want to step into the world of innovation.

Among the innovations, there will also be completely simple inventions that can make everyday life easier. But, the innovativeness will not be experienced just by studying the exhibits.

Within the framework of the exhibition, the Entrepreneurship Academy - EIT Food Start-up activity with the motto "Think about sustainability today, ensure the future tomorrow", will be held - lectures on various topics within the main theme of the academy - sustainability.

Sustainability has become a key word in today's world, but is everything called "green" really sustainable? Many are concerned about the emergence of the greenwashing, where companies present themselves as sustainable, but often do not follow through on their claims. The UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide guidelines for combating such practices. Digitization can play an important role in achieving sustainability, but we must be careful about its impact on the environment. Smart use of resources and key energy are steps towards true sustainability. Preservation of the environment and better management of resources is based on sustainability, which we must strive for, avoiding the traps of greenwashing and striving for real change.

These are just some of the current topics related to sustainability that we will touch on at the Entrepreneurship Academy - EIT Food start-up activity.

As part of the Entrepreneurship Academy - EIT Food start-up activity, we also organize the finals of the Be the Role Model business plan writing competition. Come and listen to the creative and innovative ideas of our competitors!

Applications for the Entrepreneurship Academy – EIT Food start-up activity are open until September 24, 2023, and you can apply HERE.

With the support of the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) project, as part of the Exhibition, B2B business meetings will also be organized where business partners, customers, suppliers or future business associates can be found, as well as a business opportunity fair where participants have the opportunity to expand their business to the international market.

Also, as part of the exhibition, the Gastro corner of Slavonia and Baranja, presentation and sale of traditional products from Slavonia and Baranja, as well as IPR Help Desk consultations for the protection of intellectual property, will be organized.

In addition, within the TERA info-stand of projects, participants have the opportunity to use services intended for legal and natural persons, through EU projects/programs with the aim of connecting, entering foreign markets, mobility and international exchange, digitalization of business, internalization of business and the use of consulting services in business.
