Successful R&I in Europe 2014 - 6th European Networking Event

For the sixth time, the conference invites researchers and entrepreneurs from North Rhine-Westphalia and regions in Europe to find new European research and innovation (R&I) partners for Horizon 2020 projects. The series of events has been a great success with over 1400 participants since 2009. In 2014, special partner regions are: Belgium, Finland, France, Greece, the Netherlands and Poland.

The networking event will be structured in parallel brokerage sessions focussing on six topics:

Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)


Nanotechnology, Materials and Manufacturing

Sustainable Economy

Life Sciences

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions/Research for Society

The event addresses especially universities and research institutes and small as well as medium-sized enterprises. Participants are invited to become involved in established and new technology networks between researchers, entrepreneurs and multipliers related to Horizon 2020. Giving a short presentation (ideas and/or results) or finding a partner by talking to decision-makers opens doors for new research and innovation projects in Europe with a focus on Horizon 2020.

Registration and Call for Presentations (ideas and/or results) are closed.
