About this event
The Innovative Health Initiative (IHI) is launching its first calls for proposal in late June and it is time to start thinking about building partnerships at our kick-off and brokerage event. This one-day hybrid event will take place on 14 June 2022 at Hotel Le Plaza Brussels, where creating project proposals and building strong, effective consortia are at the core of the day. We aim to provide pertinent information; allow open and honest discussion as well as network building through face-to-face and virtual meetings.
In the first session, IHI will present the content of the calls and outline the rules for participation. Topics covered will be the research priorities of IHI, call conditions, and even specific opportunities for SMEs.
The second session is the moment for consortia building. In the room, there will be available timeslots to make short elevator pitches on your proposals.
Whether you are in the room or in a virtual environment, you will be able to book meetings through an online platform with representatives who have an interest in the same topics. This is a great opportunity to have face-to-face or virtual project idea discussions and to find partners to build a strong consortium.
There will be coffee breaks and lots of time for questions and answers to get you rolling before the dedicated networking sessions.
Participation in the event will be free of charge! However, registration and profile activation will be mandatory to attend the brokerage event. A networking lunch will be provided for those in the room.
More information to follow soon!
