How it works

A matchmaking event is a quick and easy way to meet potential cooperation partners; people meet and greet at high speed.
Participants have 30 minutes to build connections, then the bell rings and the next talk starts.
At least, one cooperation profile must be filled in in your personal page in order to participate to the B2B session. Examples of cooperation profiles can be found here.

The workflow in detail

1) Online registration: registration will close at 2 PM on the 10th of October

Register online and submit your own cooperation profile.

In your profile you can state what kind of technology/product/expertise you are offering, what kind of cooperation you are looking for and which ideas you would like to discuss with potential collaboration partners.

All cooperation profiles will be published online and will be for everyone to see. You can change your profile any time.

It is possible to upload video into the dedicated MIT4LS youtube channel (as done for the pitch presentations in the previous editions) about your organisation/products/services. Link to the video will be inserted in the organisation description after the upload. To get the video uploaded, please send an e-mail to with the following data :

- Name of the participating organisation

- Name of the reference person registered to the event

- Short description (10 lines max): it can be a short description of the organisation or of the product/service shown in the video

- Link to download the video; the video has to be in English, 5-6 min max, AVI, MPEG4, WMV format. You can use one of the several file sharing platforms to allow the organisation download the video and upload it on the dedicated channel.


Note: The better the quality of your profile the more meeting requests you will receive.
Your business proposal is your business card, therefore spend some minutes to insert a high quality and meaningful profile.
Why and how to write a meaningful cooperation profile

2) Promotion of published profiles

All published profiles will be extensively promoted by the organisers of this event. Furthermore, all participants of the event will view your cooperation profile. A statistical analysis of 40 matchmaking events showed that high quality profiles are visited about 50 to 150 times BEFORE the event and will still be viewed AFTER the event.

3) Selection of bilateral meetings: selection will open at 2 PM on the 10th of October

E-mail notification
You will be informed by email when you can start booking bilateral meetings. Check which cooperation profiles are most promising. Intelligent search options allow a quick identification of the most suitable participants/cooperation profiles. Within a few minutes you should be able to identify future potential business partners.

Booking of bilateral meetings
Once you have found the most promising business partners you can select them for bilateral meetings. You can add further meetings any time but please be aware that the bookings are managed on the principle "first come - first served". You can book meetings BUT you can also be booked for bilateral talks by other participants! For more information see the booking guide.

Your personal meeting schedule
A few days before the event you will receive your personal meeting schedule (furthermore you can constantly check your meeting schedule online). This meeting schedule gives information about the time, the number of the table and who you are going to meet.

Confirm your participation
In case you have meetings the organizer needs to be sure that you will attend the event. Therefore please confirm or cancel your participation once you are asked to confirm.
Otherwise the event organizer has to inform all your meeting partners that meetings are/could be uncertain. This causes additional work and makes the event less reliable.


4) At the event

At the registration desk, you will receive an updated version of your meeting schedule including last minute bookings. Your personal meeting schedule lists in chronological order for each meeting the

  • names of your conversation partners
  • number of table for each meeting

The MIT4LS2016 staff will be at your disposal before, during and after the whole matchmaking event!
