The ener2i and SECURE R2I Brokerage Event provides an opportunity for enhancing the cooperation between Georgian research organisations and businesses, and for establishing direct contacts and partnerships between Georgian and foreign academic and business representatives, especially those from the EU and EaP countries. Part of the agenda will therefore be dedicated to 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).

How does it work?

The event is free of charge however, registration is mandatory through filling in a registration form before May 25, 2015. Please also register for the INNOVER-EAST National Validation Workshop of the National Georgian Study here.
