Apart from freely available information on the website and our newsletters, you also get access to private activities and information such as webinars and thematic files. Every year we organise one event tailored to your specific needs. This may for example be a matchmaking session, a press conference or an info session on a particular topic.
As a standard member, you can send three representatives to our network events free of charge three times a year. These events are perfectly suited for making contact with other innovative companies, knowledge institutions and public bodies. If desired, you can send extra representatives or attend additional events at a surcharge.
We furthermore organise a network lunch for our standard members in order to promote cross-fertilisation. In addition, standard members can be invited to the Steering Committee in case their presence is relevant towards the topic(s) at hand.
