Cultural Heritage Matchmaking @ SuperScienceMe 2018

Cultural Heritage Matchmaking @ SuperScienceMe

offers a forum for matching advanced cultural heritage technologies, innovation demand of cultural institutions and cities, novel applications from SMEs, and technical challenges of large companies.

The event is held in conjunction with the fifth edition of the researcher night exhibition “SuperScienceMe 2018”, jointly organised by all Calabrian universities and Institutes of the National Research Council, and Calabria Region.

Cultural Heritage Matchmaking offers participants the opportunity to meet new international cooperation and business partners for joint research projects, business ideas and technology transfer in pre-scheduled meetings.  

In addition to the B2B sessions (see the participants), the event offers other exchange and discussion opportunities with a Seminar Program (Thematic workshop & Conference) a Demo Area (visit the Demo & Seminars page).

The event is organised by SPIN together with a large group of Enterprise Europe Network members and with the collaboration of regional and national operators. CHM2018 is part of the events supporting the European Year of Cultural Heritage.
