29th “OPEN INNOVATION café” event was held in KBIC on July 21, 2023 ! This event is to provide partnering opportunities for joint research, product development and expansion of business channels to cluster member companies, and meticulously planned so that participants can join in relaxing mood by continuously introducing new plans not only for official presentations.
This time, participants from Kobe area and many other places stopped by the booth of 6 exhibitors and poster sessions onsite. 57 of cluster member companies prepared posters and it generated great interests of participants as well. It became good opportunity for the introduction of newly joined companies, new products/services and the business matching for companies aiming the new entry to medical field and we were happy to see the participants enjoyed talking in-person in good mood.
