For the tenth 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 2600 participants since 2009. In 2019, special partner regions are: Belgium, Finland, France, Israel, the Netherlands and Poland. There will be an exhibition "Innovations for Europe based in North-Rhine Westphalia" (on 14th February 2019).
The networking event will be structured in parallel workshops focussing on seven topics: Information and Communication Technologies (ICT); Nanotechnology, Materials and Manufacturing (NMM); Energy; Circular Economy; Life Sciences; Transport; Innovative Procurement (PCP/PPI).
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.
Conference fee: € 120 (€ 95 one day) per person including VAT. Free participation for speakers in sessions 1 to 5.
