BME Competence Fair

The BME Competence Fair is a first of its kind program for showcasing research and creativity, disseminating results and facilitating multidisciplinary cooperation. The aim of the event is to facilitate the meeting of like-minded experts from all over Europe for future research collaborations and European grant applications.

The hybrid (online and in-person) event will provide various opportunities for building connections: research pitches, thematic breakout room discussions and networking sessions. The program will also feature panel discussions on trending topics of the European Research Area.

The networking will be facilitated by an innovative mobile application for setting up smart profiles, initiating 1:1 or group discussions around topics of interest and organizing meetups.
