On November 9th and 10th we will organise together with our Horizon 2020 National Contact Points and the University Medical Center Utrecht (UMCU) in the Netherlands an international matchmaking event to find partners for the coming Horizon 2020 Health and Eurostars calls. The matchmaking event will target organisations who are interested in collaborating with participants from the Utrecht/Amersfoort region. The event will be focused on a few selected Horizon 2020 calls from the Work programme 2018-2020 around ‘Healthy Urban Living’.The aim for the matchmaking is to start new (inter)national relations and to build potential consortia for future Horizon 2020 and Eureka/Eurostars proposals. Organisations (businesses as well as research organisations) from all over Europe and especially from EU-13 countries are invited to participate.November 9 will be reserved for site/company visits. On November 10 information sessions, an information market, pitches, workshops and pre-arranged one-on-one meetings will support your search for new projects and/or partners. The main exhibition area at the venue has stands demonstrating the latest products and services. The workshops will be clustered around 3 main themes: Future Health Technologies, Future Society (healthy living in an inclusive society) and Future Urban Sustainability (sustainable urban environments. Participants are invited to take part in a workshop if they want to discuss future project ideas, explore interests from other stakeholders, as well as to find a common ground for collaboration in EU projects. A fourth workshop will go into detail on the Eurostars programme.In face-to-face one-on-one meetings of 20 minutes you will have a chance to establish profitable new cooperation opportunities. Before the event starts you will be able to invite others for meetings on the10th of November and you will receive meeting requests from other participants.A detailed agenda can be found on our website.
