Feb 26 @ 1:00 pm – 5:30 pm
i²c Networking Friday 2021 @ Online Event | Wien | Wien | Austria

TU Wien is the source of Deep Tech innovation in Austria. With the annual i²c Networking Friday – a conference dedicated to entrepreneurship as the third mission of a university – TU Wien not only showcases TU Wien innovations and spin-outs but also brings together scientists, representatives from industry and politics, public and private investors, entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial interested.


What has been an on-site event for 6 years is now transferred to an online event in 2021 considering all rules and regulations that come along with COVID in our daily life.

What to expect: 

This year’s panel discussion will focus on “Spin-outs as the 3rd mission of Universities: Motivation, Obstacles, and Perspectives”. The panel will be in German language. Together with our two moderators, Dr. Birgit Hofreiter and Mag. Daniel Cronin, we are looking forward to an interesting and controversial discussion with:


  • DI Michael Altrichter, Startup-Beauftragter des Bundesministeriums für Digitalisierung und Wirtschaftsstandort,
  • Mag. Marlis Baurecht – Entrepreneurship/Schutzrechte/Seedförderungen, aws
  • Prof. Dr. Ulrich Frank – Lehrstuhlinhaber Wirtschaftsinformatik und Unternehmensmodellierung, Universität Duisburg-Essen
  • DI Herbert Gartner – CEO eQventure
  • Doz. Dr. Sara Matt – Leitung Transferstelle Wissenschaft-Wirtschaft-Gesellschaft, Universität Innsbruck
  • Dr. Wieland Reichelt – CEO Evologic Technologies


9 TU Wien research projects with a high market potential introducing how they plan to revolutionize their industries with their innovations

12 academic spin-outs and start-ups supported by the TUW i²ncubator exhibiting virtually their innovations

The option to meet and mingle with the sciencepreneurs and conference participants (inter-/national investors/VCs, industry experts, and other players in the entrepreneurial ecosystem) facilitated via 1:1 meetings
