The Speed Networking service automatically finds potential matches to boost innovative projects
Developing breakthrough ideas in detection and imaging technologies requires stepping out of ‘the comfort zone’ and working with partners from other disciplines. Finding the right partner can be a big challenge.
The ATTRACT Project has launched an automatic matching service to boost breakthrough innovation and help science and business partners to co-develop ‘disruptive’ ideas together.
The Speed Networking Service automatically scans potential partners with specific expertise and/or technologies and sends alerts once it finds the right partner match. The service has already matched more than 40 research and technology partners from around the world to bring forward revolutionary ideas.
The service is free and is open to universities, research laboratories, small and medium-sized enterprises, entrepreneurs and large companies. It is intended for both those partners seeking and those partners offering specific expertise and/or technologies.
Once the service finds the right match, partners can apply jointly for ATTRACT’s €100,000 funding to develop their breakthrough innovation idea together. The deadline for submitting ideas is the 31st of October 2018.
