On the 22nd of November, in the frameworks of the Skills2Scale project the Transnational Brokerage Event: “Forging Collaborative Frontiers” was co-organised with the Startup Europe Regions Network. The aim of this digital event was to encourage and enable effective partnerships that lead to successful collaborative projects in the field of Beyond 5G technology. The brokerage services helped to identify potential partners, facilitate introductions, and provide support for the development of partnerships.
During the event, Marios Roides, Innovation Consultant in Enterprise Europe Network made a very insightful presentation on Horizon Europe Cluster 4 “Digital, Industry and Space”. The focus was on collaborative opportunities, funding prospects, and guidelines for application under Horizon Europe’s Cluster 4.
Additionally, Patricia Tejada, EU Project Manager at Finnovaregio provided her knowledge and expertise on the Erasmus+ programme. Her approach was around an introduction to Erasmus+ engagements, benefits for HEIs, success stories and case studies.
The reason why we chose these two programmes to project is that it is easy for HEIs to apply for, since they combine educational material with research and innovation.
At the second part of the event, the audience was divided into three breakout rooms. The participants chose a break-out room during their registration:
- Room 1: Horizon Europe Cluster 4 Projects
- Room 2: Erasmus+ Collaborative Projects
- Room 3: RAISE – Building a Unified EU Startup Ecosystem: Fostering Growth and Collaboration Across Europe
