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 initial consortium is then presented to potential partners who are looking for specific expertise.

In the course of brokerage events, researchers thus find the opportunity to found partnerships across Europe and to demonstrate their expertise in EU research. Their main aim, 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 officer responsible for your institution.

Currently, the following brokerage events are advertised:


Horizont 2020 Energy Efficiency: Info Day and Matchmaking Event

Workshop "New Developments in Industrial Biocatalysis"

Field: Biotechnololgy
Date: 14 February 2019
Location: Frankfurt a.M.
Organizer: Robox and Carbazymes

The workshop "New developments in Industrial Biocatalysis" will take place on February 14 2019 in Frankfurt Main and will explore the state of the art in industrial biocatalysis using the new technologies developed in the Horizon 2020 projects ROBOX and CARBAZYMES.

The project ROBOX ("Expanding the Industrial Use of Robust Oxidative Biocatalysts for the Conversion and Production of Alcohols") has demonstrated the techno-economic feasibility of oxidative biocatalysts using four oxidative enzymes, which are currently used primarily in the pharmaceutical sector is to achieve a broader industrial application in markets with higher volumes and lower product prices.

In addition to oxidative biocatalysts, C-C bond formation reactions are of central importance in industrial organic synthesis to produce new molecules that are readily available from readily available materials. Although biocatalytic carbolation processes have promising potential, they remain largely unexplored due to a number of technical hurdles. The goal of the CARBAZYMES project ("Sustainable Industrial Processes Based on a C-C Bond-Forming Enzyme Platform") is the biocatalytic synthesis of products on an industrial scale using a broad platform of C-C bond forming enzyme

There is the possibility to participate in a networking event.
