Join us at ISPIM Connects Bangkok 2020 to discover how the Innovation Community in this vibrant city and region is blossoming. This conference, ISPIM's first in Thailand, will bring together 250 innovation professionals from around 25 countries. Thailand is on the road to becoming an innovation Hub in Southeast Asia. Government, private sector, universities and start-ups are working together to develop an innovation ecosystem to support the Thailand Government’s economy 4.0 agenda. Thailand is eager to develop an inclusive, sustainable and technologically advanced economy, which is reflected, for example, in the emergence of digital parks, co-working spaces and in its vibrant community of entrepreneurs. A strong emphasis on social innovation is also an interesting characteristic of the Thai Innovation Landscape. Most large Thai organizations list innovation among their top strategic priorities and there is much to be learned from these companies innovating in constrained emerging markets.

The First Immersive Business Event in Europe! Would the Martians let us in? Elon Musk wants to fly to Mars. Now, this sounds like a reasonable idea. But what makes us think that we don’t make the same mistakes as in the past? There is an old saying that you cannot escape from your own demons. But the Martians are smart, they won’t let us in unless we have proven that we can tackle the biggest challenges of the 21st century on our own planet. The Future Academy X opens the doors to a completely new category of business events beyond anyone’s imagination. You are going to be part of the MISSION X M.A.R.S. You can only solve the mission in collaboration with your crew members. 1. There is not a ‘perfect’ personality to go to Mars. Some mindsets are brilliant at building the engine. Some are best at charting the course. Once a crew is set up - diversity of skills, and the ability to learn from each other is key. To become part of the mission purchase your ticket on Eventbrite. 2. Whilst the mission is the pinnacle of your experience, the story begins before you arrive. An online invitation will be sent closer to the mission date with a login to a dedicated website. Here you gain access to a previously unexplored part of the story as well as details of your bespoke identity, mission, and the encouraged dress code for the evening. 3. Turn imagination into vivid memories as you enter the doors. Getting to Mars takes the best of our current technology, plus innovation and adaptation to a new environment. Expect a day filled with action, new knowledge, music, dance and plenty of surprises, as you accomplish the mission collaboratively. 1 Big Transformative Mission 10 Crews 200 Chosen Crew Members 1 Martian Jury A one day spectacle, a gigantic business workshop accentuated by music and an immersive theatre group from London.

Do H2020 financial reporting and EC audits scare you? Are you often unsure whether you are doing the right thing in the most efficient way? Do you need some concrete recommendations on what to do in case of specific situations (personnel cost calculation, budget reallocation, equipment costs) in your project? We know that Horizon 2020 finances can be confusing; there is a lot of information and sometimes these can even be contradictory. We will not only explain those annotations in the H2020 model grant agreement, but we will give you examples and share our own experience and real stories from our own 15 running projects! We will go over these and many more practical daily issues that you will typically come across during your project’s lifecycle. Also, feel free to ask your questions regarding your project during the training; we love to hear some real stories and you will also learn from other participants tackling similar challenges in their projects. There a lot of “EU funding specialists” out there, but very few can prove their expertise through obvious success: up and running H2020 projects. Europa Media and its sister company Geonardo have been active in EU funded research and innovation projects since 1999, having coordinated and implemented over 60 projects to date.

After this, you will go through Europa Media's famous financial reporting workshop to simulate financial reporting under H2020: together with your group mates, you will fill in an actual financial statement for an H2020 project using custom-made documentation including timesheets, salary slips and invoices.
