Are you ready to commercialise your business in new international markets? Answer the survey and make this happen via the OTF Programme!
The Overseas Trade Fair (OTF) Programme is back! The OTF 2.0 Programme aims to facilitate the access of EIC beneficiaries to international trade fairs in new geographical markets outside the European Union. The European Innovation Council (EIC) invites all its beneficiaries to participate in our survey with the purpose of highlighting your needs as regards expansion to new markets and the types of barriers that you may face.
The goal of this survey is to gain a better understanding of your current status quo regarding smooth access to foreign markets, analysing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on your market development strategy.
Have you recently received funding under the EIC and/or would you like to commercialise your product/services in new markets? If so, we need your help to shape the programme and tailor-fit it to your commercialisation strategy.
The survey will remain open until March 16. Your feedback will contribute to the preparation of the OTF 2.0 Programme to ensure that it responds to your needs.
What is OTF?
OTF is a programme funded by the European Innovation Council. Its objective is to support the EIC beneficiaries (funded as of 2014) in setting up partnerships in regions with strong clusters of clients and potential business partners. The OTF Pilot Programme, which took place between 2017 and 2018, facilitated the presence of EIC beneficiaries in 15 international trade fairs outside of the European Union. Overall the Pilot Programme provided 204 cutting-edge EIC beneficiaries with a total of 4.705 meetings and helped generate EUR 26 million in business. The new OTF 2.0 Programme is currently being launched and will take place between 2021 and 2023.
