Succesful R&I in Europe 2024





11th European Networking Event

For the eleventh time, the conference invites researchers and entrepreneurs from North Rhine-Westphalia and regions in Europe to find new research and innovation (R&I) partners for Horizon Europe projects. In 2024, special partner regions are Belgium, Finland, France, Israel, the Netherlands and Poland, but the event is, of course, open to researchers worldwide. About 300 participants from over 20 countries are expected to attend the event.

About 100 presenters will inform you about their projects. Make use of the opportunity to become part of the European research and innovation community or to cultivate your network! The short presentations (ideas and/or results) focus on Horizon Europe calls, where a total of around €95 billion are available up until 2027. There will be parallel sessions on eight topics:

  • Cluster 1: Health
  • Cluster 2: Creative Industries
  • Cluster 4: Digital Technologies
  • Cluster 4: Industrial Technologies

If you are interested in giving a short presentation on a European project (idea or results), you are invited to take part in the Call for Presentations, the aim of which is to facilitate communication between the participants. 

Speakers profit threefold:

  • They have the opportunity to present their research topics and results to the auditorium of the specific workshop.
  • During the breaks there are networking booths for further discussions between presenter and audience.
  • Their conference fee is waived.

Joanna Drake, Deputy Director-General for Research and Innovation, European Commission, and Gonca Türkeli-Dehnert, State Secretary, Minister of Culture and Science of North Rhine-Westphalia, are invited as keynote speakers. Both speeches will highlight the importance of Horizon Europe in both European and North Rhine-Westphalian research and innovation policy, where international networking plays a key role.

You are invited to join such networks and for interested presenters to submit a proposal for the Call for Presentations, which is open until 12 January 2024!
