Brokerage event: boosting technology transfer in Central Europe, Budapest

Boedapest, Heldenplein
date May 7, 2020

location Budapest, Hungary Show location
organisation Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME)i

On occasion of the official launch of the KETGATE Network we invite all small- & medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and research & technology organizations (RTOs) looking for the right research and/or industry partner to explore cooperation opportunities.

The goal of KETGATE is simple, we want to help businesses reach science and we want to help science reach businesses. This way, businesses can gain competitiveness or even enter into new markets while RTOs can generate revenue (be it financial, academic prestige or research related) from the knowledge they possess.

To that end, KETGATE and Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) have joined forces to organize a brokerage event. The idea is that SMEs and RTOs get together to workout cooperation agreements.

Different sessions of pre-arranged meetings will take place, where SMEs and RTOs representatives have 30 minutes to introduce themselves and discuss technology transfer opportunities in a field related to key enabling technologies.

Have a look at our agenda and learn in three easy steps how to pre-arrange your meetings for the event.

Register and start boosting technology transfer in Central Europe!

The event is part of the KETGATE project activities and it is organised in cooperation with Enterprise Europe Network.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) the event will not take place in Budapest. Instead we will offer all registered participants a virtual environment where you can safely have your meetings with Central European SMEs and RTOs. The date and time of the event remains the same and registration is still open! So don't think it twice! The event still takes place and you can still have your part in boosting technology transfer in Central Europe!! More information coming soon.
