Successful R&I in Europe 2022 – Description


Unfortunately, the obstacles presented by the coronavirus pandemic are such that we are obliged to postpone Successful R&I in Europe 2022 – 11th European Networking Event on 17 and 18 February 2022 at Van der Valk Airporthotel Düsseldorf.

Despite the potentially high interest, too few participants are currently willing to accept our invitation to attend the event in Düsseldorf because of current risks and travel restrictions.

In order to guarantee the added value of participating in such a networking event, which essentially depends on the number of potential partners as well as on the quantity and quality of the presentations (Call for Presentations), we have therefore decided to cancel the event planned for 17-18 February 2022 and to hold it in 2023.

All registered delegates will be informed.

Irrespective of this, we are glad to offer you the services of the Enterprise Europe Network in support of Horizon Europe proposals. Please send us a short notice and we will contact you.

We apologise for any inconvenience and hope to welcome you to Düsseldorf in the near future. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

For the eleventh time, the conference invites researchers and entrepreneurs from North Rhine-Westphalia and all other regions throughout Europe to find new European research and innovation (R&I) partners for Horizon Europe projects.

Participants are invited to give a short presentation (ideas and/or results) with a focus on Horizon Europe calls, where a budget of approx. € 95.5 billion is available up until 2027.

The networking event is structured in parallel workshops focussing on seven topics:

  • Cluster 1: Health
  • Cluster 4: Digital (ICT)
  • Cluster 4: Industry (Materials)
  • Cluster 5: Energy
  • Cluster 5: Mobility
  • Cluster 6: Food & Bioeconomy
  • Innovative Procurement (PCP/PPI)

The event addresses in particular universities and research institutes as well as companies, especially small and medium-sized enterprises. Participants are invited to become involved in established and new technology networks between researchers, entrepreneurs and multipliers related to Horizon Europe.

Giving a short presentation (ideas and/or results) or finding a partner by talking to decision-makers opens doors for new research and innovation projects in Europe with a focus on Horizon Europe.

Conference fee: € 120 (€ 95 one day) per person including VAT.

Invoices are despatched before the event.

Free participation for speakers in sessions 1 to 4.

Please note that the event organizer does NOT cover any travel expenses, costs for hotels etc.!
