The focus for this year is Small and Medium Size Enterprises (SMEs), of which there are more than 200,000 in the Basque country. The event provides an important networking opportunity as well as a chance to share innovation challenges and best practices with other SMEs.

The program for the day includes the presentation of the Innobasque Innovation Report, a panel discussion and talks from innovation experts like Eduardo Anitua, President and Scientific Director of the BTI Biotechnology Institute and Digital Transformation Expert, Silvia Leal.

One of the highlights of Global Innovation Day will be the “The Challenges of SMEs” workshop. The session looks to find solutions to the innovation challenges facing SME’s through presentations and industry leader success stories.

The workshop will focus on five areas:

  • New business models
  • People: knowledge management, training and talent
  • New Marketing strategies
