W4RES-GREENET Joint Networking Event - HE Energy supply/use calls for proposals

How does it work?

A matchmaking event is a quick and easy way to meet potential cooperation partners. 20 minutes run fast, but they are enough to build first connections before the meeting ends and the next talk starts.

1) Registration

  • Register via the Register button.
  • Add contact and organisation details as requested
  • Those who are interested to manage 1:1 meetings MUST select at least one networking session

      2) Publish a business profile to showcase your needs and/or pitch your skills or project ideas

      Create a clear business profile to raise your visibility on the b2match platform.
      Your profile should describe who you are, what you can offer to potential partners, and who you want to meet. A good profile will generate significantly more meeting requests. 

      You have the chance to also pitch your skills and competences or project ideas against one or more topics among those included in the calls:

      If interested, please follow the guidelines here.

      3) Browse profiles of attendees

      Go to the participants list to find out who is offering interesting and promising business opportunities.

      4) Send & receive meeting requests

      Browse published participants profiles and send meeting requests to those you want to meet during the event. 

      5) Matchmaking Event

      Access your meetings in My Agenda or Meetings, where you have your complete schedule for the event and the list of your meetings. Check your camera and microphone and don't be late!

        Technical requirements for Virtual meetings

        The virtual meetings take place through the b2match video tool, which is integrated in the b2match platform and it doesn’t need to/it can't be downloaded.

        Use a device with an incorporated webcam or a webcam. Without the camera, the meeting can still take place in the audio mode.

        Microphone and camera

        You can test your microphone and camera in your Meetings list, once you are logged in to your b2match profile. In order to do this, you need to click the blue Camera and microphone test and follow the instructions.

        If there are issues, the system will indicate the browser's documentation's regarding the microphone and camera usage

        Additionally, you can do the following checks:

        • test your microphone with other apps, such as Google Meet, Skype, Zoom, etc. 
        • run Twilio's network test, which will start an automatic diagnosis to check if Twilio has permission to use your microphone and camera
          •  Twilio is the name of the software we use for online meetings 

        Happy matchmaking!
