Welcome to the

Net4Society Cluster 2 Matchmaking Platform

The Matchmaking Platform is open all year round and offers you the chance to find partners for all upcoming Cluster 2 calls. 

Furthermore, we invite you to another great opportunity to join Cluster 2 consortia! 
New calls have been opened in January 2023, covering topics aiming at setting-up the European Collaborative Cloud for Cultural Heritage (ECCCH).

The European Commission organizes an information day to cover all aspects of ECCCH topics opened in the 2023 call of Cluster 2. This event is scheduled to take place online 28.03.2023 from 10:00 to 12:00 CET.
In order to capitalize on this event and further boost your possibilities to take part in the ECCCH call, a dedicated matchmaking window will open on the very same day from 13:00 to 17:00 CET.
We invite you to use this opportunity to find partnerships for the ECCCH call. Simply register on this website and join the sessions!


ECCCH will be a one-of-a-kind digital infrastructure that will enable unparalleled transdisciplinary and large-scale collaboration between cultural heritage professionals across the EU through cutting-edge digital tools.

With an envisaged budget of €110 million until 2025 from Horizon Europe dedicated to support its development and establishment, the Cloud will foster cooperation and co-creation among cultural, creative and technology sectors and will help safeguard European cultural treasures through a digital infrastructure.
