On 26 June 2018, the day after the European Commission’s Info Day for Horizon 2020’s Societal Challenge 2, BioHorizon will host its 4th International Brokerage Event in Brussels. Offered free of charge, the brokerage event will support applicants seeking the right partners to participate in the upcoming calls. It will focus specifically on the 2019 topics in all three calls under Societal Challenge 2 (namely Sustainable Food Security, Blue Growth and Rural Renaissance) and the Key Enabling Technology 'Biotechnology' (KET-B).
Following a general introduction to the topics and some information on aspects to consider when building a consortium, the main part of the event will comprise a series of bilateral meetings between individuals interested in the same call topics. Following successful registration for the event, participants can pre-arrange these bilateral meetings automatically by means of a sophisticated, user-friendly matchmaking tool.
Participants will also be able to meet with representatives of various supporting bodies and initiatives, as well as with the NCPs from the BioHorizon project for personalised support and information.
Furthermore, the event will provide a limited number of researchers and entrepreneurs a platform to present their project ideas and expertise in 5-minute flash presentations.
Registration is open until 27 May (or until the maximum capacity of 250 participants is reached). For more information and registration, please visit the event website
