technology & innovation

IT'S TIME FOR IMPACT FESTIVAL

The IMPACT FESTIVAL is Europe’s largest B2B event and platform for sustainable innovation, bringing together European GreenTech start-ups & scale-ups and key stakeholders to accelerate sustainable transformation.

With its immense impact on our economy, sustainability is a great chance for early adopters, but also a risk for those who refuse to transform.

As Europe’s first community-based platform, our purpose is therefore to discuss and accelerate the green transformation together by connecting thought leaders of sustainability, innovators, corporates and investors with each other.

With its immense impact on our economy, sustainability is a great chance for early adopters, but also a risk for those who refuse to transform. Collaborating, innovating and acting to turn the threat into an opportunity for sustainable growth becomes inescapable.

FOSTERING COLLABORATIONS FOR IMPACT

By connecting GreenTech start-ups, corporates, and impact/ ESG investors, the IMPACT FESTIVAL is accelerating the green transformation. The aim is to enable innovative solutions to be scaled up and implemented. Thereby, we focus on 7 innovation areas. These were derived from the EU Green Deal and the Sustainable Development Goals.

RESOURCE EFFICIENCY

This category includes solutions to save energy, CO2, water or waste in all its forms. The focus lies on circular economy and sustainable building.

SUSTAINABLE FINANCE & DATA

We present innovative forms of financing and educate about ESG & impact investing to ensure long-term investments in sustainable projects.

FUTURE MOBILITY & SMART CITIES

Sustainable mobility will be the norm by 2030. We present green technologies that predict demand, optimize capacity, improve efficiency and reduce environmental impact.

SUSTAINABLE SERVICES & REGULATORY TECHNOLOGY

Managing two transformations (sustainable and digital) at a time is difficult. We present solutions to keep up with new regulations and manage the transformation within firms.

AGRICULTURE TECHNOLOGY & FOOD INNOVATION

Feeding 10 billion people climate-neutral, while preserving biodiversity and improving animal welfare – impossible without innovations by 2050! We show fitting solutions.

CLEAN TECHNOLOGY

Breakthrough CleanTech innovations are necessary to stop and to reverse climate change. Many technologies are currently being developed and we will present the most promising ones.

EDUCATION & ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Sustainability is not just CO2 related. We present best practices and corporate possibilities that support socially responsible governance and promote social entrepreneurship.

What does sustainability actually mean? Which innovations, technologies and services enable companies to become more sustainable? What inhibits and what promotes the transformation? How can we contribute to this?

IMPACT TALK

The podcast series IMPACT TALK discusses current challenges and opportunities with sustainability thought-leaders, founders, experts and visionaries from different sectors.

In our second season, we take deep dives with changemakers and their innovative ideas to solve current challenges in the field of sustainability. As always, we do not want to talk about, but with those who are creating impact. In each episode, we welcome a start-up that also participates at the IMPACT FESTIVAL 2022.
