Are you a small or medium-sized enterprise active in offshore renewable energy and would you like to expand your activities in UK, USA or Australia? If so, you can apply for financial support (€ 1500 - € 3000 per SME) via ELBE Eurocluster.
10 April 2024

ELBE Eurocluster has opened the second call for "Internationalisation Services" for SMEs interested in promoting their offshore renewable energy related solutions and/or products in the United Kingdom (UK), the United States of America (USA) or Australia.

The support received from the ELBE Eurocluster should be dedicated to actions aimed at market development in the UK, USA, or Australia, such as flights and accommodations for a business visit in the target country, costs for supporting a service provider of the SME’s choice to establish contacts in the target country, or participation in a dedicated event in the target country. 

These are only some examples; other activities related to onsite market development are also included in this support. Please note that the internationalisation activities funded by this support have to be finalised by 15 November 2024.
