SCHEDULED MISSIONS

The missions last 3-5 days and are composed of market-specific business seminars, one-on-one meetings at a targeted trade fair and networking events to maximize opportunities for the EU participants.

  • Identify relevant key contacts (decision makers, R&D centres, potential business partners etc);
  • Establish relationships with potential partners (trade and technology);
  • Benefit from face-to-face meetings leading to possible business opportunities;

TARGETED PROFILE
