B2B Matchmaking “New Manufacturing & Composite Processes”

New products and materials require new joining technologies. Identical but also different materials are to be connected with each other. This offers opportunities to conquer new markets with new products and services.
Experts from the Euregio Meuse-Rhine will inform you about proven processes and current trends and challenges in joining technology.

Several companies will present themselves with short presentations (pitches) in which they will also explain their concrete ideas for a cooperation. You will also get to know each other in one-on-one meetings to discuss questions or approaches to solutions in detail.

Please keep in mind: As part of our “Innovation2Market” project we provide financial support for cross-border cooperation!

Use this opportunity to find your perfect match!
