Partner search and exchange of ideas for research projects in the fields of nanotechnology/materials science, biotechnology/bio-based economy, medicine/health, energy.

The conference addresses experts from Russian and North Rhine-Westphalian universities and research institutes. The objective is to strengthen the dialogue and bilateral cooperation in research and innovation as well as to initiate joint projects in the areas of nanotechnology/materials science, biotechnology/bio-based economy, medicine/health and energy.

The conference will provide information on the North Rhine-Westphalian and Russian research landscape. Experience reports on ongoing scientific projects between the Russian Federation and North Rhine-Westphalia will give insight into the practical implementation of the cooperation.

We invite you to shortly present your research project ideas and to describe partners sought within one of the panel sessions (a maximum of 5 minutes and 6 slides). After the sessions there will be special ‘meeting points’ for further discussions between presenters and audience.
