On Day 1 after the welcoming words from Tecnalia’s CEO – Iñaki San Sebastian, Klaus Beetz, Interim CEO, referred to some milestones already accomplished and addressed major challenges ahead, stating that “our
Ambition is to transform Manufacturing domain” and motivating all participants to be part of “the EIT Manufacturing Ambassador team”. Stefano Fontana, Head of Innovation Communities Unit at EIT joined us for the entire event and also, via Skype, Jürgen Tiedje, Head of Unit D2 - Advanced Manufacturing Systems and Biotechnologies, Directorate-General for Research and Innovation at European Commission.
