Virtual meetings with B2Match - How does it work?

This is an open 1:1 networking and introduction platform that helps organisations to find partners to collaborate on the EUREKA Global stars Call and other future opportunities. The platform showcases the technology and skills that you can offer and require to make something happen.

This is an fast effective way to meet new international collaboration partners to discuss your project ideas, skills, needs and move your research project forward.

  • All meetings arranged via this website are in the form of video calls.
  • There is no personal meeting schedule other than what you arrange yourself.
  • You build your own agenda based on accepted meeting requests.

Accepted meeting requests will be scheduled according to mutual availability and preference. When sending a meeting request, you will be able to propose the date and time for a 15, 30, 45 or 60 minute video call. Date and time of the call can later be re-scheduled by both parties if needed.

You can continue to send and receive meeting requests to arrange more meetings until November 20, 2020.
