This year's event was split into two parts:
1) Project Building
An important part of the Eurostars Autumn event was reserved for the Matchmaking of companies and research organisations from the Netherlands and 35 other Eurostars countries. The Matchmaking was organised by Enterprise Europe Network. During the event companies were also invited to pitch their ideas to a group of peers. Eurostars works on a bottom-up basis, meaning that representatives from all technology fields are welcome to participate in the Programme. The event focussed in particular on:
2) Providing Information
There were opportunities to learn more about the Eurostars Programme (application process, eligibility rules, tips and tricks for writing successful applications) and the national funding rules of potential project partners. Representatives from the Eurostars Secretariat in Brussels and national Eurostars offices were present at the event.
