IraSME & CORNET Partnering Event Prague 2016

Pitch Presentation Sessions 

The main focus of the Partnering Event is the Elevator Pitch session. 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 an elevator ride (5 min). Additionally you can present your organisation and your technical expertise to meet potential project partners. After the presentations there is room to meet face to face and consider a partnership more carefully.

Participants may apply by selecting the preferred Pitch Sessions during registration, or by entering the personal profile page and editing the registration data.

Slots available are limited, and have to be prescheduled with the organization team via e-mail to
