Service description

This service aims to enhance EIC beneficiaries' network and collaboration with key partners, which includes corporates and investors. The following activities will be offered: tailor-made matchmaking activities with an extensive network of partners from the Enterprise Europe Network, such as open innovation sessions with corporates, municipalities, and national authorities, brokerage events, participation in international company missions or co-creation workshops for Smart Cities to facilitate testing and uptake of innovative solutions. Expected outcomes are commercial collaboration, technology transfer, research & innovation collaboration, or co-creation of a pilot. Key partnerships through the EEN partnering opportunities database are also expected to be developed. Interested EIC beneficiaries will follow an intake assessment to review best-suited partnering service, and design an action plan detailing the provision of the services and conditions, involving close follow-up in view of reaching a partnership agreement with a key partner in the Brussels innovation ecosystem. The service duration depends on the outcome foreseen and is mainly online, possibly on-site (e.g.: specific workshops, tech city tours).
