The online event "Research Meets Industry" on April 21, 2021 will feature Future and Emerging Technology (FET)/EIC (European Innovation Council) Pathfinder projects funded by the European Commission with the aim of bringing together companies, stakeholders and researchers.
The event will provide an opportunity for innovative companies to find scientific support and build relationships that can help with idea implementation. It provides an exclusive opportunity for companies and the scientific community to meet and begin conversations to increase their innovation potential.
Through presentations of FET/EIC Pathfinders projects around technologies for energy and the environment, followed by a Q&A with industry partners, researchers can network with other project representatives and get a sense of how other researchers conduct pitches. By meeting with researchers in their field of interest, company representatives will also receive the latest and most up-to-date scientific research results, come into contact with researchers, build a network for future collaboration, and strengthen their innovative capacity.
Participation is open to all members of FET/EIC Pathfinder projects as presenters, industry representatives, venture capitalist and investors, and anyone interested in the above topics as an audience member.
