WEBINAR | Leveraging EU funding scheme to enable EU-Brazil RDI cooperation

From 14:00 to 15:00
Location: Online, Belgium

Tuesday, 4 February 2020
14.00 - 15.00 CET


European SMEs can access different internationalisation funding schemes made available at regional, national and European level to scout and enter new markets outside Europe. 

This webinar, organised by EBN on behalf of ENRICH in Brazil and in collaboration with INNOWWIDE, aims at presenting to Business Support Organisation how they can be partners of EU companies looking to internationalise their businesses in Brazil. Learn the available funding opportunity for EU SMEs interested in the Brazilian RDI ecosystem and the way Brazilian RDI actors can leverage this scheme to attract and cooperate with European companies: the INNOWWIDE call for VAPs.

On 15 January 2020, the INNOWWIDE project launched its 2nd call for Viability Assessment Projects (VAPs) which will grant 60,000€ to 70 European SMEs to assess the viability of their services/products in third countries outside EU. The grant is aimed at allowing EU SMEs to work with trusted partners in the targeted country to run their VAP.

In this framework, the importance of trusted partners is clearly high. ENRICH in Brazil can introduce EU companies interested in the Brazilian market to the right local stakeholders. ENRICH Soft Landing Hubs and ENRICH partners are definitely well-positioned to act as “broker”. 

During this session concrete experiences of Business Support Organisations in non-EU countries and successful companies from the first INNOWWIDE call for VAPs will be presented.
