Space2Waves aims to promote access to international markets for European clusters and networks involved in the development and provision of EO products and services in support to Blue Growth.
Expected results are:
- Support 30 SMEs to go global. Thanks to a global internationalisation programme, 30 European SMEs will have the chance to benefit from preparatory activities to develop business abroad, matchmaking missions in one of the four target countries and follow-up actions in order to maximise the initiated collaborations. Access to third market is a leverage effect for SME's competitiveness and will be a strong asset in the development of SMEs concretizing parterships abroad.
- Build concrete and sustainable partnerships with clusters or business networks in target countries. Space2Waves aims to build concrete partnerships and create a cross-border and cross-sectoral network focused on space and blue growth activities.
- Extend the SpaceWave alliance. Space2Waves will foster interclustering on EO and BlueGrowth challenges. By integrating other European clusters into the SpaceWave Alliance, it will lead to pan-European cluster cooperation and strategy to go international in third countries beyond Europe.
