Zum Ort

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)
  • Energy
  • 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.

As a young start-up enterprise founded in the framework of an FP7 project, we profited from introducing our technology to a vast international audience of companies, universities and research institutes

Polyscale GmbH & Co. KG, Aachen

The event gave me a deep insight into European research and innovation projects and the corresponding funding opportunities in Horizon 2020. Furthermore, it was highly beneficial for building networks leading to common proposals
