Partnership opportunities

A virtual brokerage event takes place next week (9 to 13 June) to help SMEs and academic groups to identify suitable partners for health and life sciences research under the European Union’s 7th Framework Programme (FP7).

Thirty partners in the informal network, SMEs go Health, have collected and selected relevant partner searches and profiles from researchers and health companies in their own countries. The collective database is organised according to the draft topics that are expected to be in the next call for submissions, but can also be searched upon any keyword.

From 9 June to 13 June 2008 there will be an intensive matching process in which SMEs go Health will assist companies and academic researchers one-by-one to find relevant partners in the database.

The SMEs go Health network was created to assist SMEs and academics in their European R&D strategy, and successful participation in FP7 and the virtual brokerage event is seen as an important means of achieving that aim.

The third call for submission in the FP7 Health programme is due to be launched in July 2007.
