Summary and objectives

INTonomous - a new European project Ready for the United States, Canada and the United Arab Emirates.  

The European project INTonomous (COSME, Clusters Go International), of which Next Mover (former Mov’eo) is coordinator, is funded by the European Commission and started in 2020.

The objective of INTonomous is to create strategic European value chains that bring together innovative SMEs in the field of autonomous and connected vehicles and to develop them outside Europe. Intonomous is particularly aimed at markets in the United States, Canada and the United Arab Emirates, and will offer SMEs a tailor-made mission. One goal: go International!  

Focused on the theme of the autonomous and connected vehicle, the INTonomous project is therefore inspired by the internationalization strategies developed in the framework of the MobiGoIn and Impact Connected Car projects, which have been real successes and have reinforced the experience of our clusters in terms of internationalization.

Six clusters are partners of INTonomous: Baden-Württemberg Connected (Germany), Fondazione Torino Wireless (Italy), Media Evolution Southern Sweden (Sweden), Mov’eo (France), Autoklastr (Czech Republic) and Zone Cluster (Hungary).

The INTonomous internationalization strategy is based on three successive phases:

First of all, the aim is to generate European value chains on the autonomous and connected vehicle by relying on a network of European SMEs that stand out for their innovative character, diversity and complementarity. These will be linked according to their skills and solutions, and in relation to the needs of the targeted markets (United States, Canada and United Arab Emirates). For each of these countries, a specific value chain will be developed as well as a common marketing and communication strategy, in order to promote potential technological and commercial partnerships during the missions that will be organized in the three target countries.

In addition, the INTonomous project will provide acceleration services to the selected SMEs to prepare them to enter the target markets. A series of webinars will be organized to address internationalization and foreign market entry strategies, the specificities of the three target countries, and trends in the autonomous and connected vehicle. Subsequently, European matchmaking events will be organized to launch the collaboration between SMEs and benefit from expert advice for each target country.

Finally, a tailor-made mission will be organized to the United States, Canada and the United Arab Emirates to promote the solutions, expertise and competence of the European value chains that will have been set up.

Results expected

INTonomous’ partner clusters will take advantage of their large international network and the numerous trade fairs and networking events on site to foster the development of technological and commercial partnerships.
