Important issues 

This B2B matchmaking forum is looking to help partners to further improve and develop their innovative idea/technology / product / service and is not a unique ‘buyer – seller’ event.

The B2B matchmaking forum should similarly not be used by consultants to sell their advisory services to clients. Consultants with specific expertise to become partners of Horizon Europe projects for instance are welcome provided they explain this expertise and give references of past Horizon 2020 projects they have been involved in.
