The first two online matchmaking events of the PV IMPACT project took place successfully on 5&6 May 2020. More than 30 experts from the VIPV and BIPV sectors met virtually in a dedicated platform to discuss project ideas and find synergies for collaboration.
The event opened with an introduction of the PV Impact project, followed by presentations by EU and national funding mechanisms’ representatives. Presentations were then followed by a session organized around a speed-dating format (one-to-one networking meetings), where participants held a series of 7-minute conversations with each other. These dynamic interactions allowed them to communicate the essential information about their plans and ambitions and to identify whether the person opposite to them had an initiative they would like to be part of.
Interactions were ranked by the participants in order to identify the best project idea and the most collaborative partner.
