From 28 May 2015 to 29 May 2015
Location: Rome , Italy

This year’s EBN TechCamp will take place in Rome, Italy on the 28-29th of May in the EU|BIC Lazio ITech Incubator! 

The EBN TechCamp is the main EBN technical event where incubation and acceleration practitioners from EU|BICs all over Europe and beyond come together for mutual learning, experience exchange and enhancement of technical know-how. This year’s edition will take place in Rome, Italy in partnership with BIC Lazio and BIC Italia Net, during the 28-29th of May.

The sessions on the first day will focus on the Lean Start-up Methodology and procedures for setting up Fab Labs. Relevant field experts will animate each session in order to provide detailed know-how on these methodologies, their characteristics and the best way to implement them.

The second day will focus on Social Innovation, as the FP7 funded project TRANSITION partners will introduce key differences between mainstream incubation and social innovation incubation. By providing concrete examples, the partners will present the Social Innovation Journey: a dedicated framework support methodology for incubators willing to scale social innovation in Europe. Starting from this concrete experience, the ESIIN online platform will be launched acting as a social innovation incubation lab

Tools to innovate organisation’s services will be showcased through a one-hour pitching sessions, while tool presenters will be given exhibition space in the venue throughout the two days of the programme. 

 Moreover, three activities will take place simultaneous to the programme, namely: The Lego Serious Play, the Business Model Canvas Game and an App Hackathon. The Lego Serious Play will allow participants to work through imaginary scenarios using visual three-dimensional Lego constructions to ultimately foster creative thinking through team building metaphors drawn from organizational identities and diverse experiences.

Through the Business Model Canvas Game, TechCamp participants will be given the chance to supervise teams of entrepreneurs while they apply the Business Model Canvas methodology to convert an idea into a sustainable business. Lastly, the App hackathon initiative has the goal of enabling participants to observe and witness how a Hackathon is run and developed. Coders and programmers will compete in different groups with the objective of creating a touristic mobile app for users to easily exploit the wonders of Rome, reusing content from the Europeana portal.  

By combining interactive speaker presentations with dynamic and practical workshops, participants will leave the event with a much more pragmatic and global understanding on how to best aid and support their entrepreneurs as they launch and grow their start-ups!
