ECS Brokerage Event: a networking event for finding potential partners for your project idea

About the event

The ECS Brokerage Event combines the brokerage activities of the industry associations AENEAS, EPoSS and Inside into one networking event dedicated to project proposals in the field of Electronic Components and Systems.

This event facilitates the ECS communities and collects all project proposals and experts together, making it easier for the ECS research community to find and create information and project proposals.

ECS Collaboration Tool

The event is linked with the ECS Collaboration Tool; the online tool that enables users to initiate projects and invite partners, or use the messaging system to look for partners or projects.

After forming consortia, online and at the ECS Brokerage Event, project teams can assess the best mechanism for funding support for their project, be it a National, KDT-JU, European Commission or EUREKA type funding.
