In the context of the Singapore Week of Innovation and Technology (SWITCH) on 8-12 November 2021, the European Commission (EC) will organise the EU – Singapore Matchmaking Event. The matchmaking will occur virtually on 11 and 12 November.

The event is being jointly organised by the European Commission Enterprise Singapore (ESG) with support from the EU Delegation to Singapore and the Singapore Ministry of Trade and Industry. It is facilitated by the European Cluster Collaboration Platform (ECCP) and the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN), including its local “EEN Singapore”.

The Matchmaking will gather EU cluster organisations and SMEs, as well as clusters and SMEs from non-EU COSME countries and Singapore. It will provide a unique opportunity to promote Cluster to Cluster (C2C), Cluster to Business (C2B) and Business to Business (B2B) exchanges between participants. It will be organised virtually through the B2Match platform.

The aim is to promote information exchange and networking opportunities for European cluster organisations, their members and companies with counterparts from Singapore.

Further objectives are to:

  • Explore trade, investment and partnering opportunities related to the event’s focus areas
  • Initiate discussions that would ultimately result in Letters of Interest, Memorandum of Understanding, and other types of partnership agreements.

Focus areas:

  • Smart Cities and IoT
  • Advanced Manufacturing
  • Clean Energy
  • Digital Economy
  • Health and Wellness
  • Food and Agriculture
  • AI and Robotics
  • Emerging Technologies
