ATTRACT Online Conference: Igniting the Deep Tech Revolution


Dear EIRMA members,

The ATTRACT Project is an EC funded initiative led by a consortium of leading European Research infrastructures, EIRMA and EU Universities. 

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement nbr 777222.

European labs are constantly generating fundamental advances in science and engineering. However, this deep tech rarely makes it to the market to benefit Europe and its citizens.

The project (ATTRACT) aims to assist European Industry in search of future detection and imaging technologies by reducing the risk for the development of Deep Tech ideas and turn them into viable technological choices while contributing to the emergence of a strong European Deep Tech ecosystem. 

The ATTRACT Conference has been designed to offer Industry the scope to understand, get to know, evaluate venture capital opportunities and help ignite a European deep tech revolution!
