Attendance of each High Level Forum edition is made of High Level Executives – Policy or Decision Makers- as Representative’s of their regional Innovation Ecosystem, where they are fully engaged in the Innovation strategies and programs.
Each delegation from an Innovation Ecosystem is expected to be well representative with Delegates coming from various domains, as Education, Research, Industry, Business, Finance and Public Authorities and enough sized with 3 to 8 Members.
More specifically for the 2019 edition, and considering the theme of the Forum about Big Data environment, delegations are expected to include Actors of Big Data Creation, Management and Usage.
