On Wednesday 22nd June Inventya held an Enterprise Europe Network brokerage event during the International Festival for Business 2016 in Liverpool.  The event focused on R&D, technology and business collaboration opportunities for organisations involved in circular economy, resource efficiency and eco-innovation.

The event started with presentations on R&D funding opportunities from the European Commission and Innovate UK, followed by project and technology pitches before lunch.  In the afternoon organisations participated in 20 minute pre-arranged 1-2-1 meetings with potential partners for technological and commercial cooperation.

The event proved successful with an international audience of 113 delegates attending from 96 organisations, 40 of which came from overseas.  Overseas participants included representatives from Spain, Turkey, Italy, Germany and as far afield as Australia.  In total participants took part in over 200 1-2-1 meetings, 44 of which were rated with possible cooperation prospects.
