Virtual Seminar and Matchmaking Event

Call for Expressions of Interest

Deadline: 21 September 2020

The European Commission is pleased to invite you to apply to the EU – South MED Cluster Matchmaking Event & #TechDays. This virtual event will be jointly organised by the EU-funded European Cluster Collaboration Platform (ECCP) and THE NEXT SOCIETY.

The EU-South MED Cluster Matchmaking Event & #Techdays will represent a unique opportunity:

  • To initiate and to strengthen cluster cooperation between European cluster organisations with counterparts from South MED countries and their members, especially SMEs, by exploring trade, investment and partnering opportunities related to the specific sectors outlined below; and
  • To promote discussions and networking between participants, which would ultimately result in the development and signing of Letters of Interest, Memorandum of Understanding, and other types of partnership agreements.

The event will take place in the context of the 7th EU-Africa Business Forum , which will be a major event bringing together European and African business leaders and policy makers to foster business cooperation between the two continents. The flyer of the 7th EU-Africa Business Forum can be found in the attachments below.
