Consortium building at EFECS

EFECS features a Pre-Brokerage day for consortium building on 22 November. In the build-up to the conference, the ECS Collaboration Tool will support you to connect with potential project partners and prepare your project idea, before the start of the event.  The EFECS organisation offers visitors the ECS Collaboration Tool, as it supports the ECS community, the creation of new project ideas and  consortia building.

The ECS Collaboration Tool is open to all in the ECS Community, and available 24/7. Users can initiate projects and invite partners, or use the messaging system to look for partners or projects. After forming consortia, project teams can assess the best mechanism for funding support for their project, be it a National, ECSEL-JU, European Commission or EUREKA type funding.

If you would like to give a Project Idea Pitch or bring a Project Idea Poster, we strongly advise you to add your idea in the tool. In case you would like to apply to pitch your idea in one of the ECS-SRA sessions, please take the steps 1-6 listed above.
