Over 170 highly dedicated members of EIT ICT Labs' network joined together in this year’s partner event on October 25-26 in Espoo, Finland. In a two days get together full of keynotes and workshops, exciting best practices and magic tricks, the focus was on exchanging knowledge and seeing innovation in action. The online interaction application screen.io enabled instant communication with the audience during the whole event, thereby constructing an intelligent manner of exchanging opinions, questions and suggestions.

The first day of the summit was particularly focused on collaboration between EIT ICT Labs' partners and how the work can link stronger to partners’ core business interests. There were lively discussions on how to make Co-location Centres vibrant and how to boost business opportunities out of the action lines. 

We also celebrated the opening of the brand new premises of the Helsinki Co-location Centre of EIT ICT Labs situated at the Open Innovation House, where many of our partners including Aalto University and Nokia are also present. 

It was great to see the enthusiasm and engagement by all participants involved. It was really impressive, Johanna Gavefalk, Marketing & Communications Director EIT ICT Labs, said.
