In June 2021, PUZZLE X™ was created as the world's first frontier technology and materials hub in Barcelona. With the support of the Government of Spain, the Generalitat de Catalunya and the Barcelona City Council, PUZZLE X is a vibrant global event and a 365-day ecosystem and business generator, as well as the first place to collide ideas, innovation and solutions for cutting-edge materials technology towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
PUZZLE X's mission is to accelerate transformation through the use of the most cutting-edge technologies of our time for a prosperous and sustainable future. Featuring a vibrant international event, a start-up accelerator, venture builder and year-around engagement, PUZZLE X™ leverages the transformative power of Frontier Tech to drive the next chapter for citizens, cities, industries and societies.
PUZZLE X™ focuses on how key technologies in the “Matterverse” can shape the next chapter for cities, citizens, industries, and societies. The event will take place between 15-17 November 2022 in Barcelona, and bring leading figures in industry, science, capital, startups and governments to create the first hub of activities for Frontier Tech in Spain and Europe.
