This “Eurostars: Ready for Take Off” event represents an excellent opportunity for Finnish companies to connect with potential Eurostars project partners. The event is organized on 4 April 2024 by the Dutch funding body, the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO), in collaboration with the European Enterprise Network (EEN), and hosted in the historic setting of Artis Zoo, Amsterdam. In addition to connecting with potential project partners, the event provides an opportunity to learn about the key factors for success before, during and after a Eurostars project.

Eurostars is the largest international funding program for SMEs collaborating on R&D projects that create innovative products, processes or services for commercialisation. Business Finland provides R&D funding to Finnish companies and research organizations as part of the Eurostars program.

We warmly welcome Finnish SMEs to join this Eurostars event in Amsterdam, which provides an excellent opportunity for networking and kick-starting new R&D collaboration projects with international partners.

Eurostars is a bottom-up program and all technology fields are invited to participate in the matchmaking. However, the thematic sessions during the event focus specifically on the following topics: Digitalization, Life Science and Health, Sustainable Solutions, Agriculture and Food technologies

More details about the event programme and speakers can be found on the event website, where registration is now open. Attendees can participate in the matchmaking organized in collaboration with the Enterprise Europe Network by registering separately on this website. Participants are also invited to pitch their project idea during one of the thematic parallel sessions.
