The objective of the 3rd edition of the FCH JU Brokerage event, co-organised during the Michelin Challenge Bibendum by NEW-IG and N.ERGHY, is to help our members with the preparation of drafting proposals and search for the right consortium partners in the context of the Call 2011 which is to be launched at the beginning of May 2011.


The FCH JU Brokerage Event aims to:
- propose your project idea to potential project partners
- check project ideas from others to join their consortium
- work out project ideas to indicative proposal
- build a project consortium
- build and enlarge your network
Who should attend?
Everyone who is interested in responding to the Call 2011 for project proposals in the FCH JU. The international Brokerage Event in Berlin is the right place to bring well targeted ideas and clearly defined cooperation needs together from the research and business sector. 


Participation will be free of charge for NEW-IG and N.ERGHY members but other organisations interested in the 4th FCH JU call are welcomed to join us for the event. Registration will be accepted on a first-come, first-get basis until the 200-participants limit is reached.
