About Us


Be Wiser Connect is an online match making tool which showcases over 80 ICT firms 'Connect Firm' and 20 Research, Technology and Development centres 'Connect RTD' across Europe and the US (Cyprus, France, Germany, Ireland, Slovenia, Spain, Northern Ireland and the US) who participated in a V-LINC analysis as part of the BeWiser project. The purpose of this tool is to facilitate both B2B introductions and connections and research connections within these regions, in order to promote collaboration and create additional linkages between European & US clusters.

Any interested firm or research organisation can use the ‘Connect’ function to engage in facilitated connections with the listed firms or RTD centres from the Be Wiser partner clusters. These  connections can provide opportunities not only for firms to network with industry peers across Europe but also provide a platform from which firms can collaborate on a wide range of activities; from the creation of market opportunities to research innovations between partners.
