BioHorizon Food Brokerage Event 2016

Flash Presentations

Researchers, entrepreneurs and other stakeholders are invited to present their project idea addressing one of the topics contained in the 2017 work programme for ‘Food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, marine and maritime and inland water research and the bioeconomy’ (SC2) or for the Key Enabling Technologies call focusing on Biotechnology (KET-B).

SME representatives and organisations from EU13 countries looking to participate in the upcoming calls are especially encouraged to present their expertise and project idea.

These flash presentations will be selected in advance of the event following submission of a presentation proposal. Selection will be based on the presentations' relevance to the 2017 topics and the degree of general interest based on an assessment of the participants. The presentations will last no more than 5 minutes and should ideally be held by prospective coordinators. Please note that the number of slots available for flash presentations is limited and that not all entries can be selected. 

If you wish to hold a flash presentation during the brokerage event, please download the template here and submit your presentation to before 1st June 2016. Presentations failing to follow the template and the instructions therein, especially presentations exceeding the allowable number of slides, may be rejected without further consideration of their content or quality.
