Qilimanjaro joined the second edition of Innovation Journey, an event organized by BSC, Barcelona Supercomputing Center, and EuroCC Spain, National Center of Competence in Supercomputing, Big Data and Artificial Intelligence.
A spin-off of BSC, Qilimanjaro attended two different sessions of the event. First, on the 15 of October, Qilimanjaro presented its experience as a start-up and played a mentorship role in one of the training workshops for future Spanish entrepreneurs, high-performance supercomputing start-ups. This workshop has been planned in the wake of the increasing need for technology transfer from the researchers to society at large.
The second session where Qilimanjaro participated was the Spin-Off Day on 22 of October, which brought together seven spin-offs of BSC discussing the particular issue of technology transfer at the Spanish and European level. The convergence of research and entrepreneurship became an obvious conclusion of the intense discussions.
