The Consortium’s internationalisation strategy is composed of two interdependent parts:
- Develop strategic partnerships in the target countries. Partners in the United States and China will act as bridge builders helping SMEs integrate themselves into local networks, gather intelligence, and help source demand for solutions. Matchmaking missions will be organised to arrange meetings between project owners and solutions suppliers as well as potential local partners.
- Support the SMEs internationalisation strategy. To meet the market demand in third countries and deliver integrated, global solutions, SMEs must tap into complex value chains and work in partnerships. The consortium will develop tools to help SMEs enter those new markets, guide them in forming cross-sectoral, multinational consortia along value chains to deliver integrated products and services.
