Good to be back
We look back at a valuable experience with a good visitor quality and a positive atmosphere at the expo floor that exceeded our expectations in the current circumstances.
We received positive feedback from the ITEA project partners that highly appreciated the booth and interacting with the other attending project partners and visitors, creating new potential for collaboration. This was confirmed by the survey were almost 90% indicated that they would participate again in such a customer fair if we offer them the opportunity in the future.
“The expo was useful, also because of proactive contacts with other companies that were represented.”
- Freek Bomhof, TNO
“It was great to meet ITEA staff and other project members in person, and share ideas which you do not easily come up with during a video call.”
- Eljo Haspels, CFLW Cyber Strategies
"I really liked the atmosphere, as well as the attitude of the ITEA members.“
- Merijn van Tooren, Almende
“ This event was an excellent opportunity to foster synergies between fields with 5 domains represented (Cyber Security, AI, IoT, 5G and Blockchain), to create interactions between the projects and to connect them with the Cyber Security Advisory Board.”
- ITEA Vice-chairman Jean-François Lavignon
ITEA Cyber Security Advisory Board (CySAB) meeting
The focus on Cyber Security during these two days was the perfect momentum to set up the second (hybrid) ITEA Cyber Security Advisory Board (CySAB) meeting. At the end of the first day of the expo seven ITEA projects - CyberFactory#1, DEFRAUDify, PARFAIT, SCRATCh, STACK, TESTOMAT and XIVT - shared their innovative Cyber Security solutions with the CySAB members (Amsterdam AMC, AVL List, Ericsson, Saab, Siemens Mobility, Signify and Turkcell) that attended the meeting. The dialogue between the members and the projects offered opportunities for future collaborations in the domain of Cyber Security.
Looking forward to future physical events
For the ITEA team it was great to meet the project partners again, to support them in their project dissemination and to get them closer to the market. Getting together strengthens the happiness of the ITEA Community and we sincerely look forward to new and safe opportunities to meet again!
