IraSME & CORNET Partnering Event 2021

We all share a common vision: Innovation without borders! Through this virtual brokerage event, the CORNET and IraSME coordination teams invite you to meet online with companies & researchers from various countries and scientific backgrounds in order to prepare for joint R&D projects.
You may also contact your local CORNET or IraSME representative to receive more detailed consultations and answers to your specific questions – right here through this site!

Get the latest information on transnational funding schemes and networking opportunities during our three webinar sessions on 24 November 2021, starting at 3.00 pm CET (7.00 am MST / 5.00 pm MSK). As our networks include partners from 4 different continents, finding a time slot which works for everybody is of course a bit of a challenge… So thank you already to those who rise to the challenge of either getting up very early or staying up very late in order to participate!

Set up your individual B2Match profile in order to present yourself and your cooperation needs, and schedule virtual face-to-face meetings with potential cooperation partners. Meetings take place between 25 November and 16 December 2021.

For more information on the two funding networks presented here, please also visit the homepages of IraSME and CORNET.
