The European Alliance for Technology Development (Alliance Tech) is a think tank and expert network that promotes the emergence of transformative technologies across sustainable geo-innovation zones. It provides a co-creation framework and business assistance to innovators, investors, private and public sector organisations, academia and R&D centers across and beyond the European continent. 

Alliance Tech is a non-profit registered in France.

 CONNECTING GEO-INNOVATION  ZONES ACROSS EUROPE AND BEYOND

From artificial intelligence, to blockchain, to computer vision, to cybersecurity and much more, a variety of cutting-edge technologies originate from Eastern Europe. This region  from Russia, to Ukraine, to Belarus; from the Balkans, to the Baltic states, to Central Asia — is home to vast talent pools, reserves of entrepreneurial energy, and considerable investment capacities.

Alliance Tech designs or promotes programs to bridge this emerging geo-innovation zone to the global market — in particular through Western Europe’s innovation-oriented areas, which offer a variety of development opportunities.

  • Startup mentorship and acceleration: Alliance Tech and its partners help Eastern European startups integrate to the global market through acceleration programs and individualized mentorship support. These programs are designed with institutions from the countries of origin and destination to make startup development beneficial to all.
  • Cross-European partnerships:  Alliance Tech and its partners help private and public players build partnerships across the continent and co-design forward-looking development strategies – through education programs, academic and research programs, industrial alliances, ecosystem integration, etc.

FOCUS AREAS & APPROACH 

Through the rich background of its founders, advisors and partners, Alliance Tech’s key areas of expertise include Digital Health, Fashion Tech, Food Tech, Industrial Tech, Digital Commerce and Fintech, as well as blockchain and Web3, among others, in a sustainable perspective. 

While supporting innovators in an individual, tailored way, Alliance Tech designs and promotes Integration Programs. These can be described as sets of practice-based methodologies that aim to develop and deploy innovative technologies though existing or emerging value chains.
