Industry MeetingPoint with FCS – November 10th. 16:00-19:00

Industry MeetingPoint with FCS gathers companies and industry representatives around the Kvarken region for AI enhanced networking and to be inspired by the future sustainable actions of the industrial establishments.

During the first part of the event participants will be taken to a virtual flight from Kokkola via Vaasa to Örnsköldsvik, Umeå and Skellefteå in Sweden. Since the Future Cleantech Solutions, FCS project focuses on strengthening cross-border cooperation and business opportunities between cleantech SMEs and regional large-scale investments and establishments, Industry MeetingPoint is the place to be for those seeking for new industrial partners and co-operations.

Time for 1:1 meetings, 10min each, starts directly after the presentations. We recommend to book meetings in advance to ensure your perfect match, even though it is possible to take a chance and do it during the event. While 1:1 meetings take place, inspiring discussions in the studio continue – the possibilities of Nordic co-operation and coaching in successful virtual business meetings. Join the live stream and chat with us when possible, e.g. while waiting for the next meeting to start.
