Research Meets Industry – March 4, 2021

Matchmaking event for FET projects focused on

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

Our online “Research Meets Industry” event on 4th March 2021 will introduce 14 exciting Future and Emerging Technology/EIC Pathfinder projects funded by the  European Commission.

The event is an advantageous occasion for innovative businesses to find scientific support and build a relationships to launch their next idea. It offers an exclusive opportunity for both business and the science community to meet and start up conversations in order to boost their innovation potential.
