ENRIITC your Knowledge – The first series of webinars is ready to go!

We are pleased to announce the upcoming start of ENRIITC your Knowledge*, a series of online training and organisational webinars targeted to experts involved in setting up collaborations between Research Infrastructures and Industry, such as Industrial Liaison Officers (ILO) and Industry Contact Officers (ICO).

The overall aim of this webinar series is to share knowledge, expertise, skills and best practices amongst ILOs and ICOs in order to improve performance and increase collaboration between industry and RIs.

Each webinar will be standalone, free of charge and will be made publicly available on YouTube, hence enabling training on demand to a wide audience.

The first series of  ENRIITC your Knowledge webinars, will take place on 27 May, 10 June and 21 June 2021, at 15:00 CEST.

  • ENRIITC your Knowledge #1: “The ILO and ICO roles for beginners”

    THURSDAY 27 MAY 2021 | 15:00 – 16:30 CEST

    This first ENRIITC your Knowledge webinar, will be exploring the role of Industry Liaison Officers (ILO, officially appointed by the member states and associated countries to stimulate the collaboration among the national industry and the international RIs) and Industry Contact Officers (ICO, research infrastructures staff in charge of developing business relations with all potential industrial suppliers and users), paving the way for future synergies and collaborations between these two key roles of the ENRIITC project.

    Different ILOs and ICOs will present their views on their role and key performance indicators.


  • ENRIITC your Knowledge #2: “The basics of physical brokerage events for first-time organisers”

    THURSDAY 10 JUNE 2021 | 15:00 – 16:30 CEST

    Physical events bring together key representatives from research infrastructures and industry, but they can be quite challenging to organise. ILOs and ICOs setting up these events, must plan them seamlessly to ensure that representatives from both industry and research infrastructures make the most out of their participation.

    In this ENRIITC your Knowledge webinar, experienced ILOs and ICOs from the ENRIITC project will lay out the key aspects, tools and processes to be considered when organising these physical events whose scope can vary between large face to face brokerage events and more thematic workshops, allowing less experienced ILOs and ICOs to learn about the key elements to ensure interaction between industry and research infrastructures.


  • ENRIITC your Knowledge #3:“Tips & Tricks to organise interactive digital events with industry and Research Infrastructures”

    MONDAY 21 JUNE 2021 | 15:00 – 17:00 CEST

    During the last year we have seen a heavy trend in events taking place in the digital world, with these new digital dynamics likely to continue in the future.

    In this interactive ENRIITC your Knowledge webinar, experts across several RI domains will share their experiences, practical information and insights on how to organise interactive and engaging online events: workshops, and trade fairs coupled with B2B sessions.

    Participants will also have the opportunity to exchange experiences during an interactive session in the second half of this webinar.
