Matchmaking event for FET projects focused on ENERGY and ENVIRONMENT

FET/EIC Pathfinders projects often struggle to define an efficient exploitation strategy for their projects or to get the right contact to the industry. 

The mission of FET BRIEFING is to bridge the FET innovation gap by bringing together business stakeholders and researchers to explore together the innovation potential of their research.

If you are looking for contacts in the industry to pave the way toward technology transfer, join this exclusive matchmaking and get the chance to highlight the innovation potential of your research. 


Our next “Research Meets the Industry” event on March 4th 2021 is dedicated to FET/EIC Pathfinder projects in the fields of Energy and Environment: here you will have the chance to present your project, connect with relevant industry stakeholders and receive feedback.

Furthermore, you will have the unique opportunity to get know the two new EIC Programme Managers responsible for supporting a selected portfolio of EIC projects in the field of energy to put their vision into reality. You will get an insight into their work and understand which opportunities and tools they can offer to you fully exploit the innovation potential of your project.
