Event description


It is with great pleasure that BGI and Idanha City Hall invites you for i-Danha, an event we will be sponsoring along with EIT Digital, that will bring together investors, corporate, start ups and entrepreneurs interested/working in the Clean Tech industry. 

This event will mark the soft launch of the first AgriTech Accelerator located in Iberian Peninsula, based in one of the oldest Roman villages in Portugal: Idanha-a-Nova

AgriTech includes a very wide range of topics, from Biotech, Sustainable land use, IoT, Smart energy production and use, so on and so forth. At this events we will discuss 5 core topics:

• CO2 mitigation

• Water & Energy

• Circular economy

• Logistics & distribution channels

• Biotech 

Portugal is on the rise and so is Idanha, an unexpected place for a Tech event, which will host a pioneer program in Portugal. As such, we though why not doing a great event during the Global Kauffman Week 2016 where the improbable meets reality?

It will be an exquisite and absolutely differentiated event, and we want you to be part of it!
