HNN 2.0 at the Healthcare Brokerage Event at the MEDICA 2016 in Düsseldorf


As part of the MEDICA 2016 event in Düsseldorf on 15-17 November 2015, a global meeting place for the medical sector, ZENIT GmbH, the Healthcare Sector Group of the Enterprise Europe Network and the European project Fit for Health 2.0 organized a Healthcare Brokerage Event. The aim of this Brokerage was to give enterprises, universities and research institutions the opportunity to find partners in Europe for joint ventures or other types of partnership.

On the brokerage event a German Health NCP, and partner in the European project Health NCP Net 2.0 (HNN 2.0), was on hand to answer questions at the HNN 2.0 information booth and was available for bilateral meetings. The MEDICA participants showed considerable interest in finding out about funding opportunities in the area of Health within Horizon 2020. Interested parties were also very keen on hearing about the NCP network and the advisory services offered by NCPs as well as online platforms to find potential partners for Horizon 2020 projects. Since the event, a number of attendees have gotten in contact with their responsible NCP for guidance in proposal writing.
