On 13 September 2023, we held our Annual Forum in Vienna, Austria. The event was open to the public, as it was supported by our national project NanoSyn4.
The focus topic of the event was “Biofunctionalization”. However, several further competencies of the BioNanoNet Association members and collaboration partners were presented.
Another highlight of the Annual Forum was a dedicated session on “Excellent Science and Collaboration Opportunities”, in which the opportunity was given to “Pitch & Match for Upcoming Calls”. Calls mainly of the Horizon Europe program of Cluster 4, as well as from Clusters 1, 5 and 6 were presented by the national contact point, and participants pitched their ideas for their specific project and sought collaboration partners.
The evening ended with a networking dinner enjoying a wonderful view of the city and intersting and nice conversations.
Here are the presentations:
