BioHorizon SC2 and KET-B Brokerage Event

Flash Presentations

BioHorizon invited researchers, entrepreneurs and other stakeholders to submit flash presentations for a chance to present their project idea addressing one of the topics contained in the 2019 work programme for ‘Food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, marine and maritime and inland water research and the bioeconomy’ (SC2) or for the Key Enabling Technologies call focusing on Biotechnology (KET-B) during the brokerage event. 

The flash presentations have been selected in advance of the event following submission of a presentation proposal. Selection is based on the presentations' relevance to the 2019 topics and the degree of general interest based on an assessment of the participants. The presentations will last no more than 5 minutes and should ideally be held by the entity that intends to coordinate the proposal. Please note that the number of slots available for flash presentations is limited and that not all entries could be selected.

Following a review process carried out by the organisers, a number of speakers have been chosen to make a short presentation in one of the three parallel sessions.

The flash presentations will take place between 11:10-12:10. All sessions will be webstreamed and recorded, the videos will be available via the links below.
