As part of their #neuLAND funding opportunity the participants have set out in search both of new ways of looking and of partners. From north to south, east to west, all over Germany, they are on a voyage of discovery; with their own ideas on board they are visiting inspiring locations and are meeting like-minded start-up innovators.
Here is a very warm invitation from us to go virtually along with the participants on their expeditions throughout Germany (www.eab-neuland.eu) and to learn more about their projects. #neuLAND is funded on the initiative of the Federal Foreign Office and is being organised by the European Academy Berlin.
We look forward to meeting you here!
May we ask you to send a brief message giving your registration details by using our website until 27 October.
