Virtual Brokerage Events Eurochile 2021: more than 130 companies are already connected to our business networks
In 2020, this type of event became successful both in participation and generation of contact networks. Today Eurochile has seven virtual events scheduled, considering the new ones for 2021 and the initiatives from last year that, given their success, were extended until the present year. The invitation is for national companies to join these initiatives, which provide unique opportunities to access the European market.
During 2020, the traditional brokerage events organised by Eurochile Business Foundation with the different organisations of the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN), in their role as partner and sole contact point for this network in Chile, turned towards the virtual world due to restrictions imposed by the pandemic. And this, far from diminishing the interest in participating in these encounters, turned into successful participation and generation of contact networks.
It is a global phenomenon, which also led to many of the virtual encounters scheduled during 2020 attracting participants from all over the world in search of contacts, knowledge exchange and technology transfer. The same happened in our country, where there are already 136 Chilean companies that are participating in these events.
For this reason, Eurochile invites all national companies to join these initiatives, which provide unique opportunities to access the European market. Today we have seven virtual events scheduled, considering the new ones for 2021 and the initiatives from last year that, given their success, were extended until the present year.
Among the events that have been held since 2020 are “Meet in Italy for life science 2021”, which has been taking place since last September and until May 14, 2021. This event is dedicated to the entire value chain of the life sciences, from research to business and development, manufacturing, distribution, supply chain, regulatory affairs, and professional services to consulting and investment aspects.
The objective is to provide visibility and international opportunities to companies, innovative start-ups and other operators in the life sciences sector, open spaces for discussion between public and private actors and promote business opportunities at multiple levels.

It is a network made up of more than 165 organizations from more than 40 countries, where initiatives, offers and short-term needs are brought together. It encourages the interaction between health, industry, support organizations, government, academia, and others; and maximizes the reliability of the submitted proposals.
