Delegates from all countries including EU Member States and Horizon Europe Associated Countries are welcome and encouraged to attend and may also pitch at the event.

This event is not an information dissemination event but will focus on pitching of project ideas and building of consortia. It is aimed at those who have identified specific call topics listed above or at least areas of interest, and are ready to take the next steps, discussing concrete project ideas with potential partners and going forward to a proposal submission.

We recommend you familiarise yourself with the call topics in preparation for this event.  You may also wish to prepare for the event by watching the European Commission’s Horizon Europe Health Info Day presentations covering the 2024 calls and/or the IHI’s presentations on call 5.

Why should I attend?

This Consortia Building Event will help you find partners to form international collaborations and strategic partnerships for the calls listed above.

The event will focus on providing an opportunity for you to present a pitch your project idea or your capability offering, and you’ll be able to talk to pitch presenters and other delegates in small groups. The UK National Contact Points for Health and Innovate KTN’s European Programmes Team will also be available for small group discussions to answer any specific or more confidential questions.
