Offered free of charge, the purpose of the brokerage event is to help you find the right partners for the upcoming 2017 calls. The official opening of 2017 calls is planned for October 2016, and the first deadlines will be in February of 2017, making this the perfect opportunity to start building your consortium.The main part of the event will comprise bilateral meetings between wide spectrum of companies, universities and researchers, stakeholders from Europe and beyond interested in the same call topics.

Registration to the Brokerage Event will be open until 6th June or limit reached.

Following successful registration for the event, participants can pre-arrange these bilateral meetings automatically by means of a sophisticated, user-friendly match-making tool based on the profiles and research interests recorded in the system by participants. The event will also provide participants a platform to present their project ideas in 5 minute presentations.

This partnering event in Brussels is a unique opportunity for a wide networking and link creation between different stakeholders and new partnerships for the upcoming calls.
