Call For Innovation

EUROSIMA & OSV Support Innovation

In this unprecedented and exceptional set of circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, for EUROSIMA and Outdoor Sports Valley, the utmost current priority is to answer immediate and urgent member needs and requests. To do so, the two Outdoor and Action Sports industries associations have set up a number of emergency measures and support resources for their members.

That being as it may, in this time of quarantines and distancing, EUROSIMA believe it is still important to encourage and support innovative businesses. That is why both associations have decided to maintain and renew the Call for Innovation Projects in the fields of Action Outdoor Sports.

Because, yes, most of us are in confinement, but EUROSIMA and OSV are still actively working. So they might as well put this unique situation to good use. Innovation, will undeniably be a key factor in a rebounding economy when we begin to exit the COVID-19 crisis. It is therefore, more than ever essential to encourage and support our innovative entrepreneurs through this challenging time.
