ener2i invites research institutions, universities, companies and Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs), as well as business support organisations and other interested stakeholders with innovation targets in Renewable Energy Sources or in energy efficiency from Moldova, the European Union, Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries, and beyond to participate in the ener2i Brokerage Event on energy in Chisinau, Republic of Moldova.
The event will be held on December 11, 2014 in the framework of the Top Innovation Event, organised by the Moldovan Agency for Innovation and Technology Transfer (AITT). The Top Innovation Event is the largest and most popular annual event on innovation in Moldova.
The ener2i Brokerage Event provides an opportunity for enhancing the cooperation between Moldovan research organisations and businesses, and for establishing direct contacts and partnerships between Moldovan and foreign academic and business representatives, especially those from the EU and EaP countries. Part of the agenda will therefore be dedicated to pre-arranged face2face meetings and networking. Face2face meetings serve to find potential partners, to present competences, to discuss new project ideas and initiate partnerships for bi-lateral cooperation, or for joint projects in the EU’s Horizon2020 Programme for Research and Innovation (2014-2020).
The ener2i Brokerage Event is organized by local ener2i partners, the Agency for Innovation and Technology Transfer (AITT) and the Organisation for Small and Medium Enterprises Sector Development (ODIMM). Support is provided also by the Moldovan Academy of Sciences.
