Pioneering Innovation

Partnering with upcoming talent to spearhead new ideas

We work with Launchpad Meetups, an event format set up by StartupAmsterdam and The Next Web in 2015. StartupAmsterdam are at the centre of the European startup and tech ecosystem, providing a platform for corporates like us to connect with upcoming startup talent. By pitching ideas against a current innovation challenge, startups are given the opportunity to achieve the goals they always dreamed of.

If you’re an innovator and want to take part in a future Launchpad Meetup with Springer Nature then, click here. You will also find more general information about Launchpad Meetups here.

The challenge

At Springer Nature we aim to deliver an unparalleled author experience by anticipating and efficiently responding to the evolving needs of our authors, editors and reviewers, at every intersection of the publication process. But how can we achieve this aim and provide authors the best publishing experience at every step of their research journey?

Take part

We are looking for tools and innovations to better assist our authors and editors. Think you have the solution? Apply for our meetup here and have the opportunity to share your ideas with our senior management team.

And, for this particular challenge we have teamed up with the Catalyst Grant from Digital Science, to help nurture original, early stage ideas. They will offer a 2,000 EUR grant for the winning startup along with automatic enrolment in the Catalyst Grant.

Let your ideas innovate...

Our next Launchpad Meetup will be coming in 2018!
