What is a matchmaking event?
At a matchmaking event people meet and greet at high speed. Bilateral meetings take about 20 minutes, which is usually enough to forge business/research/technological connections. Then the bell rings and the next meeting starts.
How does the matchmaking work?
Each participant registers with a cooperation profile which will be displayed at the event website. Each participant can online select meetings with other participants they would like to personally talk to. A few days before the event, each participant will receive a meeting schedule, showing WHO he will meet WHEN and WHERE.
What are the benefits of participating in the matchmaking event?
All participants can present their expertise/projects/technologies online already BEFORE the event. All participants and all cooperation profiles will be published on the website. Participants can get in contact with each other already before the event and know exactly who they will meet at the event. A matchmaking event therefore presents a very efficient and focused way of finding new collaboration partners.
