Hotel Recomendations

Here we have two recommendations for hotels very close to the event in the north of Berlin.

Since the place is well accessable by car or public transport (Stops Tschaikowskistr. or Homeyerstr.), it is also no problem if you take a hotel closer to the city center.

Retrospects of previous events

Take a look at the retrospects previous EraSME/CORNET Partnering Events to get an impression.

Are you an Association and do your SME members have a common R&D question that needs to be solved by research-centres or universities?

If so, you may benefit from the transnational funding opportunities CORNET can offer.

CORNET networks national and regional programmes for collective research to promote cooperation between SME associations and research organisations across Europe.
