Brokerage Events Horizon 2020

The main purpose of brokerage events (synonymous: matching events/partnering events) is to find project partners from industrial enterprises or from academia for a prospective consortium. Brokerage events are organised in a sectoral, thematic or call specific manner and run parralel with conferences or seminars. Organizers are the EU Commission or interest groups in Brussels, for example ERRIN, the European Regions Research and Innovation Network. A frequent format in which brokerage events are organised is the presentation of calls by a representative of the European Commission. An original consortium is then presented to partners who are looking for specific expertise.

Researchers thus have the opportunity to found partnerships across Europe and to demonstrate their expertise in EU research. The main target, however, is for a prospective coordinator to present his or her project concept in order to find prospective partners. For further information please contact the EU officers responsible for your institution.

Currently, the following brokerage events are advertised:

Matchmaking Conference Electromobility 2018

Field: Energy
Dates: 12-13 November 2018
Location: Berlin
Organizer: Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi)

Electromobility is on the rise worldwide. It is a future core element of new sustainable mobility and an important chapter in the process of energy transition. The challenges for all affected industries are enormous: technical progress is rapid and involves extremely short innovation cycles. Traditional value chains are disruptively transformed. User acceptance must be improved - in favor of clean air in cities and villages. The effects of economic policies of crucial partner countries and new, serious international competitors, however, make structural change in the automotive industry even more difficult.

Discuss with other stakeholders the implications of these processes  for the industrial location of Germany and cooperation within the EU as well as with international partners.

The "Networking Conference Electromobility 2018" offers German and international stakeholders from industry, research and politics a forum for networking, exchange of expertise and the initiation of cross-border cooperation. Top-class keynote speeches, podium discussions and expert forums as well as an exhibition of exhibits from research and development offer a context for comprehensive networking opportunities.

The "Electromobility Conference 2018" takes place
at the hotel "andel's by Vienna House Berlin"
Landsberger Allee 106, 10369 Berlin.
The event starts at 12:30
