The Regional Innovation Fair was first organized by West Regional Development Agency and Tehimpuls – The Regional Innovation and Technology Transfer Centre in 2013 with the ambition to create a unique exchange platform for entrepreneurs, researcher and innovators and also expose the innovation ecosystem of West Region to the wider public.
Intense workshops on latest trends and challenges in the knowledge economy, exhibition of latest regional innovations, networking and innovation based businesses generate a productive setting for ideas, people, passions, and aspirations. It gains more momentum during regional innovation competition awards through which we bring the innovators from varied sectors into the light and reward them only to push them forward in their endeavours.
