Danubius Hotel Gellért, Szent Gellért tér 1., 1111 Budapest (Hungary)


Target groups of the conference are interested participants from academia, government and businesses across the Danube Region. The aim is to gather all relevant actors working in the identified societal challenges and support them in networking and establishing long-term dialogue among them.

The conference will envisage a plenary round table and three parallel sessions (on food, materials and environmental technologies and energy) during the first day, while a brokerage event to facilitate matchmaking between researchers, industry and government will be organised in the morning of day 2. It will be a unique possibility to link up participants with a special view of finding partners for upcoming calls.

Back to back with the conference, the 4th Danube-INCO.NET Clustering Workshop will be organized, aiming at the formation of new macro-regional partnerships towards the development of bio-economy, with particular focus on linking challenge-oriented research, innovation networks, industry and government.

Participation at the event (conference, matchmaking event and clustering workshop) is completely free of charge.

Travel and accommodation costs of up to 20 young researchers and innovators (10 years after first degree, plus maternity leave), participating both in the Conference and in the 4th Clustering Workshop, will be reimbursed by Regional Centre for Information and Scientific Development.

Please, send your filled application form for reimbursement to Ms. Tekla Gaál until 30 June 2016. Priority will be given to applications from researchers and innovators willing to participate in the elevator pitch during the 4th Clustering Workshop (5 minutes presentations of innovative ideas). 

The applications will be evaluated by an expert committee.
