From 22nd - 26th October, the coastal city of San Sebastian (Spain) will once again become the capital of innovation. Promoted by our project partner, Fomento San Sebastián, more than 50 events aimed at companies, university students, school students, researchers and citizens, will be accompanied by more than 150 internationally renowned experts and professionals. The city will look at innovation by and for everyone, in areas such as education, business ecosystem and international connections.
This 5th edition of Innovation week will have delegations from Vilnius (Lithuania), Birmingham (UK) and Boston (USA). These cities will organise activities as part of the Donostia WeekINN and will run different Hackathons along with San Sebastian, with shared innovation and smart city solution goals.
Each day there will be a different programme of events aimed at sparking curiosity, finding out about new technologies, robotics, exhibitions and FabLab workshops, etc.
Some of the sessions will be devoted to the innovation and digitalisation in the retail sector of the city, and DEVISE project objectives and activities will be introduced to the local stakeholders in that economic sector.
It promises to be an unmissable week that is open to the city and its citizens. Go along, get inspired and have fun at innovation week.
