Free European technology and business partnering service launched


A free technology and business partnering service is now available for all South West England companies and research organisations, enabling them to develop their business interests across Europe.

Enterprise Europe Network South West (EEN SW) has launched a quick and easy way for small- and medium-sized businesses and entrepreneurs across the South West to identify suitable EU-based partners for commercial agreements, technology partnerships and European research-funded projects.

This email-based service is updated daily and provides access to potentially lucrative partnerships with hundreds of companies, organisations, universities and research institutions located across Europe.

Subscribers to the EEN SW Partner Search Database will receive emails detailing all of the latest opportunities and joint venture initiatives related to their field of work or area of expertise. It will also enable them to search Europe for potential business partners to develop their own projects or to exploit new technology. Companies from across South West England can also use the database to publish their own profile and begin the search for new business opportunities.

Kenny Legg, EEN SW’s Partnership Adviser, says: “This is one of our most exciting and relevant services. The database is full of viable and profitable technology business opportunities just waiting to be developed.

“For instance, we currently have such wide-ranging profiles as a Swedish company looking for expertise on soldering electronic circuit boards, an Italian university offering a new type of fluid machine/internal combustion engine and a Greek medical company looking for new medical products for the Greek market. There are thousands of such opportunities in the database, covering all business sectors.

“This free service is an immensely valuable tool for the small- and medium-sized companies and entrepreneurs that are driving the economy of the South West and I really urge all such businesses to contact us and try it out.”

EEN SW advisers will also guide local businesses through the matching process, ensuring that the right partner organisation is identified and that the most appropriate international trading mechanisms and networks are in place, including contact with agents, distributors or suppliers.
