Here are the 12 scale-ups going on to the Integrate phase of STADIEM’s programme

STADIEM’s acceleration programme has finally entered its Integrate phase, where 12 of the scale-ups selected during Open Call 1, and involved in the preceding Develop phase since last summer, are moving on to begin technical integration and testing, or pre-pilot activities for public pilots, around their innovative Next Generation Media ideas. This also includes internal testing and evaluation of business processes and performance, technologies, and solutions that will enable and drive forward scale-up and corporate collaboration.
