Its a unique opportunity for project coordinators to present their project ideas and for high-tech SMEs to present their skills, so consortia can be completed. As the event is held at CERN, the leading European Research Center where Internet was born, its also the opportunity to take advantage of CERNs technology transfer possibilities.
The event is focused on the last FP6 calls of the thematic priorities Nanotechnologies, Multifunctional Materials, New Processes and Information Society Technologies, launched end 2004 and during spring 2005. They represent the last opportunities for Small and Medium Sized Enterpises (SMEs), Industry and Research institutions to be funded for collaboration with European partners in European Research Projects. In particular SMEs are popular partners if they can bring an added value with their competence. Some projects are specially tailored for them.
