On the 17th of January, the ARA Innovation Space hosted its third event at ZIMMER. This time, the topic was Circular Plastics and the intention of the event was to bring Entrepreneurs and Innovators in contact with interested people from various backgrounds and thereby create a pleasant atmosphere. In order to give every Innovator the chance to present its areas of expertise and to stimulate some discussions, the chosen platform was an unconventional but suitable one: speed dating! Our innovators were: Ecoplus, Coca-Cola, Abfallwerk, Precious Plastic and Lukas Kranzinger from Uni Leoben.
After a short introduction by the project manager, Laura Glasberg, the guests split into groups of 5 and the presenters had 20 minutes to present their field of expertise before the next round began. The following more than two hours were of high interest, stimulating ideas and discussions as well as plenty of delicious snacks and wine.
