The motto of future match is: "register, find partners, develop products".

Generating international business and technology partnerships along with research collaborations in the areas of information and communication technology are the goals of Future Match. The 19th session of this international B2B exchange will take place at CeBIT 2017 .

This brokerage event in Hall 6, Stand A27, addresses companies and universities and research institutes that are looking for associates in cross-border partnerships. At CeBIT 2016, 277 companies and research institutes from over 35 countries took this opportunity to hold more than 1,000 bilateral talks.

Future Match is organized by Enterprise Europe Network (EEN), the largest business support network in Europe. Since 1999, EEN’s Future Match has enabled collaborations for sales and licensing agreements, joint ventures, subcontracting, technology transfer and research and development projects. Together with external partners, Future Match provides consulting services on patent issues, EU research funding, and help to startups during the event.

The motto is "register, find partners, develop products". Using profiles in the online catalogue, participants register for bilateral meetings at the Future Match stand at CeBIT. Customized schedules are sent to the matching participants before the trade show begins. The goal of the database is to transform ideas into marketable products.

The key themes at Future Match 2017 are Big Data & Cloud, Business Electronics & Equipment, Commerce & Banking, Communication & Networks, ECM, Input/Output Solutions, ERP & HR Solutions, Internet of Things , Marketing and Sales Solutions, Research & Innovation, Security, and Unmanned Systems & Solutions.
