The ‘Be Smart, Think Blue’ Conference and Brokerage Event 2016 offers the full range of stakeholders in the area of marine and maritime research the opportunity to interact with the Smart Blue Regions initiative (19th September 2016) and to establish contacts with potential partners to address open calls for Blue Growth research proposals in Horizon 2020 (20th September 2016). The target audience includes representatives of research organisations, public authorities, industry, SMEs and NGOs from across Europe and beyond.

The ‘Be Smart, Think Blue’ Brokerage Event 2016 on 20th September 2016 offers a full day of opportunities to establish contacts with potential project partners. In the morning researchers, entrepreneurs and other stakeholders are invited to present their project idea in 5 minutes flash presentations. During the event attendees will also be able to meet with international national contact point staff (NCPs) from the BioHorizon and ETNA2020 projects able to provide support in relation to the rules of participation, partnering, proposal writing, etc.

M2M + Symposium

Following successful registration, participants will have the opportunity to meet potential project partners in a series of pre-arranged bilateral meetings lasting 20 minutes each. The arrangement of bilateral meetings will be based on the participant profiles and the research interests indicated by the attendees.

Participation at the brokerage event is contingent upon the submission of high quality organisation and research profiles, which are necessary to ensure the brokerage event is of the highest possible value for all attendees.
