Match Making Event ’23

On Thursday, March 9, 2023, the annual Match Making Event will be organized for the theme call 2023. Participation from partners is an important success factor. It would therefore be good if each partner is represented by at least 2 people.

The management of Netspar and CLICKNL will briefly discuss the subsidy options and procedures. Subsequently, different scientists will explain their research ideas and partners will be given the opportunity to share their interests. After the sessions there is an opportunity to network, and thus to achieve collaboration between science and practice. The concrete program will be announced at a later date.
