IraSME & CORNET Partnering Event - Brussels 19 OCT 2017

Elevator Pitch Sessions 

The concept of the Elevator Pitches is to put your project idea in a nutshell and convince potential partners to join your project in the time of a (quite long) elevator ride of 5 min. Instead of a project idea you can also present your organisation and your technical expertise to meet potential project partners. After the presentations there is room to meet and discuss a partnership in detail.

We will organise the pitches in thematic sessions. We already announced a few technical areas for the sessions according to our experience from the previous events. However we will group the pitches in three groups according to the submissions.

The Sessions are thematically completly open.

We will announce the final thematic sessions with an overview on the presentation shortly before the event.

Deadline for submission of Pitches is 16 October 2017, at noon Berlin time. Since the slots for presentations are limited we however recommend registering as early as possible.

If you do not yet have an elaborated project idea you can also reserve your slot with a first rough idea and submit your presentation later.

Please register per email to and include the following information:


  • Your Name and Organisation
  • Title for your presentation
  • Short description on your presentation ("Organisation profile" or 150 letters about your project idea)
  • Field of technology of your presentation
  • Do you agree that your presentation is published online after the event
