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 30th of September

Register online (see the tutorial here)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 in the life sciences value chain (pharma, medical devices, biotech, ICT for health, nutraceutics and related activities).

All cooperation profiles will be manually checked by the MIT4LS2017 staff. If something is missing, you will be contacted, otherwise your profile will be activated and published online and will be for everyone to see. You can change your profile any time.

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.

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 9 AM on the 15th of September, it will close at 2 PM on the 4th of October

Please, have a look to the MIT4LS2017 B2B guide, explaining how to book and manage your meetings.

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!

When you request for a meeting, a pop up window will appear, in which you can type a message that will be delivered together with the notification of meeting request to the participant of interest.  The other participant will receive a notification from regarding the meeting request, together with the message you typed in (if any).

Don’t answer to this message: by doing so you send an e-mail to the platform administrator, not to the other participant, so don’t answer. If you want to reply, please use instead the e-mail of the participant who sent you the message.

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 MIT4LS2017 staff will be at your disposal before, during and after the whole matchmaking event!
