The matchmaking day is the perfect opportunity to find and connect with potential partners for Defence related projects. On the B2Match platform you can provide us with your company details, Defence themes of interest, eligibility to the EDF and previous experience in order to ensure relevant matchmakings.

The program consist of two parts: Part one is for participants that are interested in and eligible for the EDF*. Part two is both for EDF-eligible participants as well as participants that are not eligible for the EDF but are interested in Defence related international cooperation. The day will close with a reception.
