Matchmaking event for FET-EIC Pathfinder projects

March 4th 2021


FET-EIC Pathfinders projects in the field of energy and environment are invited to join the “Research Meet the Industry event” taking place on the 4th March 2021.

This online matchmaking offers you the opportunity to connect with potential industry partners and VC and receive feedback on your project

Furthermore, you will have the unique chance to get know the two new EIC Programme Managers responsible for supporting a selected portfolio of EIC projects in the field of energy and environment to put their vision into reality. You will get an insight into their work and understand which opportunities and tools they can offer to you fully exploit the innovation potential of your project.

This matchmaking offers you a safe space to introduce your research topic and build initial contact with industry players. This will support you to deliver on dissemination and exploitation tasks and will create opportunities for further collaboration, that might also lead to the creation of EIC Transition to Innovation projects.
