Current information from the organiser:
A brokerage event for SME’s looking to cooperate in research and development projects.
In the context of the Eurostars Calls (next cut-off deadline is 3 September 2020), the Enterprise Europe Network and the public funding agencies from Belgium, the Netherlands and Nordrhein-Westfalen (Germany) co-organise an international matchmaking event for SME’s interested in Life Sciences topics.
Eurostars funds international innovative projects led by R&D-performing SME's. With its bottom-up approach, it supports the development of innovative products, processes and services. It is an ideal first step in international cooperation, enabling small businesses to combine and share expertise and benefit from working beyond national or regional borders.
To help interested parties in finding international partners (companies, universities, research institutes) with complementary expertise to set up a Eurostars project, a two-fold matchmaking event is organised in the domain of Life Sciences, including health, biotech, medtech and agrotech:
Please note that participants of the virtual matchmaking session on 27th May are also invited to attend the full Eurostars Life Sciences matchmaking event (with presentations, pitches and bilateral meetings) on 9th September 2020 in Ghent!
The physical Eurostars matchmaking event is scheduled on the day before the Knowledge for Growth conference (on 10th September 2020), one of the largest conferences in Europe in the domain of Life Sciences, that will take place in the same premises in Ghent. By scheduling the Eurostars event adjacent to this conference, participants will have the opportunity to attend several interesting presentations in the life sciences sector and network further with companies and research institutes active in the field.
The Eurostars matchmaking event is free of charge.
Participants of the matchmaking can enjoy the Knowledge for Growth conference at a reduced price (40% discount on the general registration fee) when registering in advance.
