Gain an impression of „Successful R&I in Europe 2024: 11th European Networking Event“ in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Become part of European networks for research and innovation and get ready for Horizon Europe!

We look forward to welcoming you!


For the eleventh time, the conference invites researchers and entrepreneurs from North Rhine-Westphalia and all other regions throughout Europe to find new 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 eight topics:

  • Cluster 1: Health
  • Cluster 2: Creative Industries
  • Cluster 4: Digital Technologies
  • Cluster 4: Industrial Technologies
  • Cluster 5: Energy
  • Cluster 5: Mobility
  • Cluster 6: Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Ressources, Agriculture and Environment
  • Innovation 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: € 150 (€ 120 one day) per person including VAT.

Invoices will be despatched after 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.! The conference fee includes dinner on 15 February, lunch on 16 February, tea/coffee/cold drinks during the breaks and the airport-venue shuttle (solely as provided by the organizers). Registration is binding. We reserve the right to charge the participation fee if a delegate fails to cancel their attendance by sending an email to below by 8 February 2024.

During the events since 2009, many productive and lasting contacts have been established between researchers and entrepreneurs from NRW and other parts of Europe. That’s why our participants are keen to meet in Düsseldorf each year as part of their proposal preparation for Horizon Europe.
