TII Innovation Tool Fair
From 18 Nov 2010 to 19 Nov 2010
Location : Brussels
The next TII Innovation Tool Fair will be held on Friday 19 November in Brussels, in collaboration with TAKE IT UP, the promotional pillar of Europe INNOVA.
The Tool Fair will follow the format of one half day (morning of 19 November) of 5-minute presentations of innovation tools and services, followed by a half-day (afternoon of 19 November) of one-to-one meetings (speed dating) between the tool holders and interested adopters. The objective is that each participant goes home with a number of interesting new job tools which can be adopted or tested further.
For the first time all tool owners are invited to take part in the “Best Pitching Award”, which is managed by TAKE IT UP. This new initiative consists of a 1.5 hour webinar, face-to-face coaching on the afternoon prior to the Tool Fair, and, for the top three finalists, the opportunity to make a two-minute “video pitch” to promote their innovation tool or service at an international level through the TAKE IT UP Warehouse of Innovation Tools and Services (www.takeitup.eu).

Although priority will be given to tool developers involved in a Europe INNOVA project, all Innovation Service Providers across Europe are cordially invited to participate.
