DIATOMIC online matchmaking in a nutshell

> Apply on F6S to receive personalized support for matchmaking with potential key partners for your experiment

By completing the brokerage application form on F6S you are helping us understand what type of competencies (in terms of space equipment, capacity, etc.) you are requesting of your partner for your experiment. Once you submit your request, we’ll help you identify the best technology supplier available within our network of innovation hubs – in a timely and thorough manner.

> Identify and evaluate complementarities to form small experiment teams;

Apart from technological support (including collaborative design services, access to shared research facilities, device manufacturing services), these targeted hubs offer value added business services. These include strategy development/road mapping, commercialization support, etc. Therefore, for appropriate matchmaking, be sure to specify your business needs, too.

> Go cross-border/cross-sector to find the most suitable competences and services;

Can’t find competencies and resources you need in your own region? Thinking of scaling your solution to a different sector? Stay tuned for our online matchmaking events! Throughout April and May, we’ll give you various opportunities to express your specific needs – in terms of technology, funding, and business support, to potential partners and other relevant stakeholders.
