Fruitful Partnering Event in Prague

On 24 November we spent a buzzing day at the Ministry for Industry and Trade (MPO) in Prague. More than 50 participants from various research fields took the chance to find project partners for the upcoming Calls for Proposals with deadline End of March 2017.

The day started with program presentations from MPO, CORNET and IraSME, followed by the CORNET monitoring meeting – at the heart of a project. In this session experienced project participants gave insights into running projects and explained their learnings about building and leading a CORNET project consortium. The audience was grateful for the advice and took the chance to ask questions. All presentations are available to download here.

In the Elevator Pitch sessions a broad variety of research areas presented either project ideas or presented their organisational know-how. After every pitch was time to talk about special aspects of the presentation. If you couldn´t make it to Prague but looking for a partner for the 23rd Call, you will find all presentations in our project ideas.

“The atmosphere at CORNET and IraSME Partnering Events is always inspiring. I value the chance to talk to so many people from different countries during just one day. Again, this time in Prague I made lots of good contacts for new research projects and could catch up with old project colleagues.” Dr.-Ing. Saskia Biehl, Head of Group Micro and Sensor Technologies at Fraunhofer IST

The next chance to partner up personally will be in Aachen on 31 January 2017. Please register through b2match https://www.b2match.eu/irasme-cornet-aachen-2017.
