In our commitment to support SMEs and start-ups’ innovation efforts during the ongoing uncertainties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are announcing that the PARSEC Demo Days scheduled for 2-3 July 2020 will take place online.

PARSEC is here to help you accelerate by applying to the Open Call 2 which will distribute €1.5 Million equity-free funding to SMEs and start-ups, while you are staying home and staying safe. We continue our mission to foster Earth Observation-based innovation for food, energy or environment sectors by maintaining the original plan of the PARSEC Open Call 2 while adapting to the new circumstances. Therefore, we decided to hold the PARSEC Demo Days online on the 2-3 July 2020 instead of them being held in a form of a physical event in Brussels, Belgium.

The PARSEC Demo Days are where the final pitches of the Open Call 2 applicants will be presented and evaluated. During these two days, all eligible consortia will be invited to defend their innovations in front of a jury of experts. The 15 winners presenting the best business ideas (#15PARSEC) will receive access to €100.000 equity-free funding (per consortium) and second stage business support services such as the PARSEC business catalysts, the investment readiness programme, and the export promotion services.

Details on the format of the virtual Demo Days, presentation of jury members and other information will be announced soon. Sign up for our news alerts – in the footer of this page – to make sure you do not miss anything!

Until then, connect with us and the PARSEC ecosystem during the PARSEC Virtual matchmaking event we organise on the 19th of May from 11.00 to 13.00 CEST, to pitch your business, network during B2B meetings and “meet your match”.
