Virtual Brokerage Event Horizon Europe Cluster 4 – INDUSTRY

Following the publication of the Horizon Europe’s Working Programme “Cluster 4: Digital, Industry and Space”, Go2Space HUBs is co-organising an international brokerage in collaboration with Enterprise Europe Network and the Fundación para el Conocimiento madri+d.

The main objective of the event is to meet potential cooperation partners at EU level for the preparation of a joint project proposal, facilitating the synergies between the space and non-space sectors. Participants may provide opportunities for collaboration through pre-agreed bilateral meetings.

Organizations must log in the event platform and include a cooperation profile. A matchmaking event is a quick and easy way to meet potential partners. 20 minutes run fast, but they are enough to build first connections before the meeting ends and the next talk starts.
