Wat to expect?
First of all, the terms company and company visit are used most of the time, but please keep in mind that a company could also be a research institute, university or other kind of organization which might or might not be for-profit. During a company visit we would like to find out more about your company in general, but also about the company’s activities within our theme Intelligent & Secure Cities. It would be great if at least part of the tour is dedicated to one of our theme’s specific tracks: Security & Verification, Smart Grids & Dynamic Systems, Big Data, Networking, Sensoring or Robotics. For us it is very important that the visit is not a marketing event, but goes into (technical) depth. All participants are eager to get to know about your company in depth, we would really like to learn something about the technology you are using or developing.
What is in it for my organization?
Of course it is fun to show what you’re doing within your organization and what you do within our theme. You will get exposure within a group of highly educated people from Europe, and if you do it well, also within their social networks. If you want even more exposure, you can also contact us to talk about further sponsoring options. Besides this, our participants are a group of very motivated and highly educated people who have done research on the field in which you operate. Therefore they can ask in-depth questions and you could also use this opportunity to gain an insight from a completely different perspective. All conducted activities and discoveries will be included in our final report. Of course we will also send you a copy as soon as it’s finished. If certain bits of information you share with us are confidential, we can sign a ‘non-disclosure-agreement’. Of course, we will also keep this information out of our report, and you get to review the report before it’s published.
