Creating Eco-Innovation partnerships: SwitchMed holds Business Networking event in Tunisia
November 21, 2016
The EU-funded SwitchMed programme will hold a business networking and partnership event in Tunisia on 1-2 December to connect EU Eco-Innovation technologies, ready for market uptake, with Tunisian businesses and practitioners.
The objective of the event is to strengthen the internationalisation of start-ups and SMEs in the Southern Mediterranean region by promoting the transfer of EU Eco-Innovative technologies and the creation of joint ventures, to improve their ability to achieve common competitive advantages in innovation, greening and resource efficiency.
Within this initiative, BtoB meetings will be held on 2 December between European holders of Eco-Innovations and interested Tunisian companies’ projects for commercial collaborations and/or industrial partnerships.
Participation in this event is open to all Tunisian companies and is free of charge.
The SwitchMed sustainable consumption and production programme aims to promote a switch by the Mediterranean economies towards sustainable consumption and production patterns and green economy, including low-emission development, through demonstration and dissemination of methods that improve resource and energy efficiency. It also seeks to minimise the environmental impacts associated with the life cycle of products and services and, where possible, to promote renewable energy.
