On behalf of the Ministry of Innovation, Science and Research of North Rhine-Westphalia, the Enterprise Europe Network cordially invites you to the

"Successful R&I in Europe: 6th European Networking Event"
on 30 and 31 October 2014 at Van der Valk Airporthotel Düsseldorf.


The event guides you to networks for projects in Horizon 2020, the new European funding programme for research and innovation from 2014-2020 with a budget of almost 80 billion euros. The opening address will be held by Mr. Antti Peltomäki, Deputy Director General, Directorate-General for Enterprise and Industry, European Commission.

This series of annual events has been a great success with over 1400 participants from over 27 countries since 2009.

The event addresses universities, research institutes and enterprises and encourages them to become involved in established and new networks. You are invited either to give a short presentation (ideas and/or results) or to find a partner by talking to decision-makers: both options open doors for new projects in Horizon 2020. The networking event will be structured in parallel workshop sessions focussing on six topics:

- Information and Communication Technologies (ICT
- Energy- Nanotechnologies, Materials and Manufacturing (NMM)
- Sustainable Economy
- Life Sciences
- Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions


NEW! Presentations on results and prototypes are very welcome!
