EU’s EUROMED Invest publishes its brochure on activities implemented in the Mediterranean
March 16, 2018
The EUROMED Invest project recently published its final brochure which follows the path of 4 years of activities implemented in the service of the Mediterranean Economy development. It features the main achievements and impact reached and highlights the involvement of the European Union in the development of the region.
The EUROMED Invest final brochure is intended to highlight the impact, achievements and lessons learnt during the project’s period of implementation. The publication specially focuses on tools developed, success stories identified, and offers an enjoyable format: mapping of actions carried out by country and territory, participants’ interviews, infographics, etc.
Indeed, since the beginning of the project, EUROMED Invest trained nearly 2000 people and benefited to 9000 organisations, mostly start-ups, SMEs and Business Support Organisations, but also clusters, techno parks, incubators and local and central authorities. From December 2014 to December 2017, 4524 Business-to-business meetings were organised during the EUROMED Invest Business Roadshows, both in the North and in the South of the Mediterranean. During these activities, 691 business partnerships were identified through the B2B meetings and 30 partnership contracts have been signed since then.
EUROMED Invest is a four-year programme (2013-2017), with a EUR 5 million budget, 80% of which is financed by the European Union. It is coordinated by ANIMA Investment Network in the framework of the MedAlliance consortium. The ultimate goal of EUROMED Invest is to boost private business and investment within the Euromed area to contribute to an inclusive economic development of the region. The specific objective of the project is to empower Euromed business and investment networks to implement targeted strategies supporting the creation and the international development of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises within the Euromed area.
