Call for Proposals 2021 and the Match Making Event that did not happen
Despite the fact that everything was prepared to welcome the EIT Manufacturing Match Making Event 2020 in Milan on the 24th and 25th of February, the event had to be cancelled following the recommendations of the Lombardia local authorities related to the possible corona virus outbreak consequences.
At this point of the time, all participants received already the relevant information concerning the rescheduling of the MME planned sessions (Presentations and Pitching session).
As informed, the arrangements were made to hold over the web a number of sessions of the cancelled Match Making Event 2020 and the web sessions will have the same content as the respective physical ones. The time schedule of the web sessions, the web access information and the agendas of the sessions was already shared.
Please note that these web sessions will be recorded, and the audio recording together with the presentations of each session will be made available in our intranet.
The planned Partner Assembly will be held via web conferencing on Wednesday 4 March, 14h00-17h00 CET. Taking into account the exceptional circumstances and the need to have the logistics organised, this was the earliest day we could hold the Partner Assembly. Registration / Access information and voting instructions will follow soon.
The Call for proposals 2021 is opened since the 24th of February, the submission system and the FAQs are already available and preparation for the operational system is in progress.
Another important fact is that for the first time we invite organisations that are currently not members of our association to participate in our Call for Proposals. So the PMC should be aware that they might be contacted by external organizations to start discussion on possible collaborations.
So, let’s get “Full speed ahead!” in order to bring along very ambitious and challenging projects for the Business Plan 2021.
