Are wondering if you should spend the time and money to attend one of them? Read on to find out our top 3 reasons to attend.

1-    Find companies to collaborate with

Horizon 2020 funding calls are all about joining forces with other Europeans organisations. The number one aim of brokerage event is to help you find companies to collaborate with. They are attended by academia, research institutes, industrial stakeholders, SMEs and government actors from all over Europe.

2-    Make the best use of your time

You might have to fly to Norway, Austria or Belgium for a brokerage event in your field. Brokerage events are different from regular networking. They allow you to plan who you would like to meet in advance and make the most of your time there.

3-    Meet the right people

After you have registered for a brokerage event, you will be able to see who else has signed up. You can then set up meetings with the people you want to speak to. This ensures that you meet the right people for your project.
