Europort 2019 will host several matchmaking events.
MariMatch Europort is an international "matchmaking" event for companies and institutions in the maritime industry who are looking for new business and/or research partners. The event offers the opportunity to gain new international contacts for future technology partnerships. The focus is on innovative technology. After registration on the MariMatch website participants can schedule appointments with other parties or be invited by potential foreign partners. The intermediate network of Enterprise Europe Network plays an active role in connecting parties from different countries.
Innovation is key to the ongoing evolution of the shipping industry. The industry is facing major challenges in areas such as sustainability and cost reduction. New insights and ideas from other industries can serve as a catalyst for innovation. To speed up the process, facilitating collaboration between large and small businesses, Dutch and international enterprises, shipping companies and companies from other industries, KVK has joined forces with Europort by organising the KVK Business Challenge Europort; a shipping-themed edition of the successful KVK open innovation platform that brings together larger companies and innovative SMEs and start-ups in the online and physical realms.
Is your shipping organisation facing a major innovation challenge too? Join this unique business challenge! The event officially kicks off during Europort on 7 November. More information.
