Summary and objectives

The EU KETs4Dual-Use 2.0 project builds on the outcomes of its predecessor EU KETs4Dual-Use, which was carried out as a Phase 1 project between September 2018 and February 2020.

The project intends to act as a “springboard” for European dual-use companies wishing to access international markets, with the aim of integrating sustainable long-term partnerships. The project will support European dual-use SMEs accessing markets in Canada, Singapore and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and generating growth, notably through their participation in international missions.

The main focus of the project will be the securing of business agreements to develop joint collaborative projects between the Partnership SME members and business and other relevant stakeholders from target countries, leading to increase in exports, investment opportunities and international ventures generating employment for European businesses.

The project aims to support ecosystem where European startups /SMEs will be given an opportunity to identify the optimal ways of bringing their solutions into both the European and Global Dual Use market value chain. The securing of business agreements to develop joint collaborative project between the Partnership SME members and business and other relevant stakeholders from target countries (Singapore, Canada, the UAE) will lead to increase exports, investment opportunities and will generate employment for European businesses.

Partnership other activities

Overall project activities:

In 2022, the consortium will organize workshops to prepare organizations prior to business mission in 2023. 

In 2023, the consortium will organize in total three business missions to Canada, Singapore and UAE in 2023.

Results expected

The Partnership has 500 SMEs with qualified competencies in the field of dual-use technologies acting as primary clients for project services. The main objective is to set up business collaboration and stimulate demand for start-ups/SMEs in target countries to gain cross-border diversification and sectoral synergies representing both the supplier (technology/service provider) and demand (end-user).

Focus groups dedicated to KETs for Dual-use Applications and Resilient Business Models focusing on COVID19 will be established and specific business development training will be provided to support SMEs in global competition.

To unlock growth and investment opportunities for European dual-use SMEs via international collaboration, 3 international missions to target countries will be organised. SMEs will benefit from the support of international business advisors in target countries who will organise individualised pre-qualified B2B meetings with pertinent stakeholders from Security & Defence sectors in order to generate business & collaborative R&D agreements and to access to available funding opportunities.

Key stages for dual-use SMEs are the following: Focus groups, training sessions, international missions, business development, bilateral business agreements & funding opportunities identification.
