Long name, big impact: 16. Ostthüringer Kooperationsbörse des verarbeitenden und produzierenden Gewerbes is a networking event with what the organisers call a table-fair: Everybody gets a table and can present themselves there.
EIT Manufacturing Central was actively involved in this event for the first time, since the networking event is targeted at the manufacturing industry. A wide range of companies present their products and solutions, among them also six start-ups from the EIT Manufacturing community. Silvia Grätz and Wolfgang Kniejski from the Business Creation team had great feedback from the start-ups which valued the opportunity to talk to representatives of the German “Mittelstand”.
