From 29 – 30 June 2021 the European Commission will organize virtual Information Days on the first calls under Horizon Europe Cluster 4 ”Digital, Industry and Space”. This will provide participants the chance to receive first-hand information on the new EU Framework Research and Innovation programme, new funding opportunities and the new rules for participation. Horizontal issues and the Space part (“Destination 5”) are scheduled on the first day.
In this context the network of Space National Contact Points, COSMOS2020plus, is organising a free of charge online Space Brokerage Event on 28 June 2021. The event will give participants the opportunity to matchmake with others through pre-arranged meetings in order to identify possible collaborations and business cases and to facilitate the setup of Horizon Europe project consortia. For this, registrants will enter profiles including search terms comprising the Space call titles of 2021 and 2022 (Space calls from both years are foreseen to be opened in parallel in October 2021, please see the topics here).
What do you need to participate?
The brokerage event will be implemented through B2Match. Once you register with your profile and search terms you can browse and chose other participants and can be found and selected by others. The system will provide optimized time schedules for face-to-face meetings for you. You can join these from wherever you are currently working. All you need to have is a laptop/computer with stable internet connection, microphone/headset (mandatory) and web camera (not mandatory).
A tutorial on how to run online meetings is available under the ”How it works” and ”FAQ” sections on this website.
Please note that you will eventually have to update the given time zone with your own time zone, otherwise all meeting hours will be displayed in the event’s time zone.
