Green technologies: EUROMED Invest holds roadshows in central Europe to promote business opportunities from the Southern Mediterranean
March 2, 2017
A delegation from the EU-funded project EUROMED Invest visited Prague and Budapest last month in order to present business opportunities in the green technology sector from the Southern Mediterranean countries. This delegation included two experts on the region and two entrepreneurs, one from Egypt and one from Algeria.
Each roadshow gathered around 40 local entrepreneurs interested to internationalise their business. The event was divided in two main discussions, the first session introducing the Mediterranean business environment of the green sector, the second one presenting best practices and successful business relationships between Central EU and the Mediterranean region.
Participants met young, dynamic and highly qualified Mediterranean entrepreneurs who presented their businesses and other opportunities in their region. After the general discussion a time for bilateral meetings was organised, local participants raised specific questions to Mediterranean experts and entrepreneurs on potential business opportunities and on EU funded projects in the region.
The aim of the EUROMED Invest project is to boost private business and investment within the Euro-Mediterranean region to contribute to inclusive economic development. The project’s activities aim to empower Euro-Med business and investment networks to implement targeted strategies in support of SME development in specific sectors: agri-food, water and alternative energies, tourism, transport and logistics, cultural and creative industries.
