Match@RuhrSummit: How does it work?

Match@RuhrSummit - organised by the Enterprise Europe Network (ZENIT) - is a quick and easy way to meet potential cooperation partners in face-2-face talks. 15 minutes run fast but usually it is enough to build first connections, then the bell rings and the next talk starts.


until 30 October  08:00 a.m.
