M-ERA.NET3: International Matchmaking Event on Battery Materials

M-Era.Net Logo

On 28 April 2021, the M-ERA.NET3 international matchmaking event will offer participants from Bavaria (Germany), Wallonia (Belgium), Québec (Canada), Sweden, Finland and Norway the opportunity to virtually meet new international partners in order to set up European R&I projects in the frame of the M-ERA.NET 2021 call for proposals. BayFOR supports this event as a co-organiser.

The M-ERA.NET 2021 call targets a fundamental industrial issue for Europe and Québec, materials and battery technologies, supporting the European Green Deal. During the matchmaking event, industrial players, researchers and other stakeholders from four regions of the world (Bavaria, Wallonia, Québec and the Nordic countries) will participate to meet new project partners and join world-class R&D consortia.

The event will focus on the pitch of project ideas to accelerate the development of battery materials/technologies, as well as on networking activities. Each partner region will be able to present up to 4 project ideas.

Do you want to know more about the modalities of the 2021 call and the landscape of actors in the above-mentioned regions? Do you want to hear about some potential collaborative projects that could see the light of day through these partnerships? This event is for you!

Please note that the M-ERA.Net call will also be addressed during the EU Brokerage Event on Digital & Industrial Technologies, Mobility, OITB & M-ERA.NET, which BayFOR organises on 29 April 2021 with the support of the Enterprise Europe Network and many co-organisers across Europe.
