- Assistance in finding suitable European and regional fundings to realise joint innovation projects
Business2Business – Get connected!
You could find the right partner to develop your ideas to marketability: We offered hands-on support from our business development support (BDS) managers to find your business or market-oriented R&D counterpart(s) across the borders!
To get in contact with companies across the borders and find your perfect match you could participate in our B2B networking events! Each was organised around a certain application field with a special topic.
During our matchmaking events on a well-defined topic SMEs were able to pitch, ask specific questions and look for other parties willing to partner up. It all started from opportunities and challenges that companies were faced with. We matched questions with answers, problems with solutions.
Beside the innovation funding of our “Innovation2Market” project, there were also other ways for companies to get financial support. If a certain call or funding scheme was open for proposals we organised brokerage workshops to enable consortium building. Project ideas were pitched and interested SMEs learned more about the existing proposals or could form their own consortium around a new proposal.
