Today, the Spain Entrepreneurial Nation Summit brought together the world’s leading innovation companies to discuss the importance of developing new technologies. After the presentation of the most recognized initiatives and research on solar energy, the day ended with a debate and a round-up of the conference.

Juan Manuel Corchado, professor at the University of Salamanca and director of the AIR Institute and the BISITE Research Group attended the Spanish pavilion and used this opportunity to meet with some of the stakeholders who are developing projects of this sort in the Sustainability Area of the Expo 2020 in Dubai. In addition, he has discussed, with some of our Emirati partners, the opportunities for the joint development of some projects focused on the use of disruptive technologies in existing and future cities.

After starting the second day of the Spain Entrepreneurial Nation Summit, three conferences were held: a round table about Deep Tech accelerators and research-based technology transfer; a panel about the latest national research in solar fuels; and a last round table about venture capital investments in Green Technology from the European Union and Middle East and North African countries.

The summit ended with the celebration, in the Spanish pavilion, of one of the central activities of the official program of Expo 2020 Dubai, a “World Majli” or council entitled “Innovation nation: creating innovation societies to solve humanity’s greatest challenges”.

The final session focused on R&D and knowledge transfer. These sessions were of particular interest to us as they shocased the very core of both, the BISITE Research Group and the AIR Institute, and are an important reflection of our work and an excellent source of inspiration.
