The value behind the OC Matchmaking platform

Here's why it's considered the best choice:

  1. Targeted Partnering: Unlike traditional methods like Infoday events or generic partner search facilities, our OpenCosmos Matchmaking Platform leverages advanced AI matching intelligence to connect organizations with the most suitable partners for their proposal ideas. This ensures that participants are matched with partners who can provide high-value contributions, enhancing the overall quality of consortiums.
  2. Quality Assurance: Traditional partner search facilities often lack quality assessment mechanisms, leading to a flood of irrelevant or low-value proposals and ideas. The OC Matchmaking Platform, however, ensures that only top organizations with valuable contributions are engaged, minimizing noise and maximizing the potential for successful collaborations.
  3. Resource Efficiency: Building and maintaining a strong network can be resource-intensive and time-consuming. By leveraging the OC Matchmaking Platform, organizations can bypass these challenges and efficiently connect with top-tier partners without expending excessive resources.

  6. Mobile App: With the introduction of a mobile app, our Matchmaking Platform makes networking more accessible and convenient than ever before. Users can seamlessly connect with potential partners and prospects on the go, maximizing opportunities for engagement and collaboration anytime, anywhere.
  7. OpenCosmos Matchmaking Platform open also to additional Key actors in European Research: We will invite Key players with high success record in European research to join our Matchmaking Platform for facilitating further and more fruitful collaborations. Registration will be made possible only by invite for ensuring high quality collaborations.

Why OpenCosmos Matchmaking is by far the best option to build/join competent consortia

Finding the right partners is crucial for success in competitive European Research and Innovation (R&I) Programmes like Horizon Europe. However, traditional methods have been limited and costly. Infoday events, meant for networking and learning about funding opportunities, can be oversubscribed, expensive, and offer limited time for meaningful interaction. Partner search platforms and social media groups also suffer from low quality control, making it hard to find valuable connections amidst the noise.

Even organizations with extensive networks face challenges in finding suitable partners, as networking requires consistent effort and resources.

OpenCosmos Matchmaking service offers a solution. It uses AI matching intelligence to connect organizations efficiently. If a consortium includes at least three partners from OpenCosmos Members or two partners and the OpenCosmos founder company (Key Innovations Cyprus Ltd), expert support is provided for developing Horizon Europe proposals. This includes consultation on idea development, understanding calls, proposal concept, consortium quality, and guidance on writing and evaluation.

Additionally, any proposal involving an OpenCosmos member, even if they are not the coordinator, can benefit from free services when they include the OpenCosmos founder company (Key Innovations Cyprus Ltd) as a partner or at least three OC members. These services include idea evaluation, insights on calls, advice on proposal summaries and consortium synthesis, writing guidance and proposal evaluation.
