Oncology SMEs across Europe were brought together through the ABCEurope virtual matchmaking programme in February 2012.
30 SMEs from 11 different countries submitted profiles and the 2 day partnering session generated over 60 meetings by phone or skype.
This is the first programme of its kind from the SME cross-cluster efforts in ABCEurope and the feedback was very positive from participating SMES;
- "I consider it a very innovative matchmaking event and I would repeat the experience if there is any chance."
- "Good event - interesting concept, which I would like to see done again in the future"
- "Thank you for organising this event, it's been greatly organised and a very nice initiative"
- “A great initiative to be highly commended”
The oncology event is being followed by matchmaking programmes for Imaging Facilities (March 22-23rd) and CNS companies (April 19-20th) and the programme is expected to be delivered in the longer term following the close of ABCEurope.
