Neptune International Brokerage Event

Welcome to the second

NEPTUNE Brokerage Event


The NEPTUNE International Brokerage Event (IBE), supported by the EC Horizon 2020 programme, is the opportunity to meet and exchange with SMEs or entrepreneurs from different sectors and countries with potential projects or ideas for the NEPTUNE Blue Growth Accelerator call, or to exchange and develop project ideas with the NEPTUNE Expert providers, potential end-users / customers (individual or panel) and advisory board members of NEPTUNE clusters. 


The IBE will notably support the project emergence process and the creation of partnerships to help interested participants to respond to the NEPTUNE Blue Growth Accelerator Call for Expression of Interest which provides the opportunity to potentially access services and innovation support vouchers up to a value of 60,000€.

The vouchers will offer support to cross-sectoral and/or cross-cluster and/or cross-border projects that are engaged in Blue Growth related value chains.  The potential scope of projects will range from the idea/project maturation phase of the project right up to the involvement in large-scale demonstrator projects.
