ENRICH in the USA Training Event in Stuttgart “How can I internationalize towards the US as a researcher or entrepreneur?”


We are very pleased to invite you to the “ENRICH in the USA Training Event: How can I internationalize towards the US as a researcher or entrepreneur?” which is part of the ICE/IEEE ITM International Conference of Engineering, Technology and Innovation!

The event will be held at the Evang. Bildungszentrum Hospitalhof Stuttgart, Büchsenstraße 33, 70174 Stuttgart, on June 20th, 2018.


What’s in it for you?

Going international is not an easy step. Even though the US may seem culturally close to a lot of EU Research and Innovation actors, the US eco-system and market have their own pace. Within this context, ENRICH in the USA provides you with further understanding about the US market, its main challenges and opportunities from the European perspective and support on how to successfully create relevant partnerships in the US. The training event will provide you the needed knowledge and tools to achieve your particular objectives for the US through:

  • Learning about the US market landscape, namely its main players, areas of interest and relevant multipliers;
  • Gaining insights on the US market perspective from experienced experts;
  • Learning about the services that ENRICH in the USA provides, which can assist in your approach to the US market;
  • Receiving content and knowledge developed by ENRICH in the USA that can be useful for identifying opportunities and approaching the US market.


Upon completion of the training, you will receive a Certificate of Participation. Please note the seminar will be held in English.
