The project will promote cooperation partnership agreements for better competitiveness and environmental sustainability of the participating enterprises.
The programme of Matchmakings for each selected subsector will consist of:
EU and Brazilian SMEs are invited to apply online at LCBA website. The application period for each Matchmaking Mission is opened around 90 days prior to the mission and lasts for 4-5 weeks.
LCBA Team will proceed with the exchange of profiles of applicants between potential SME matches so that they could point out those that better suit their business and technology requirements for matchmaking.
Based on the business profile, technology specialities, eligibility criteria and identified purpose after cross-referencing the choices of SMEs, the LCBA expert team will shortlist the best potential matches for the MM.
After the technical info is exchanged, the EU companies will be invited to present their intents via online conference to the Brazilian potential matches. The conference is moderated by the LCBA team and allows Q&A time also. Once the technology specialities and purpose are confirmed, LCBA will prepare the best B2B schedule for participant SMEs in the Matchmaking.
Shortlisted SMEs from BR-EU will be invited to take part in the mission, to provide updated documentation and sign a Commitment Letter with LCBA before booking flight tickets. Accommodation will be provided and travel expenditures will be reimbursed up to 80% after the mission is finished.
SMEs attending the matchmaking mission will have a full programme of activities organized by LCBA, including scheduled B2B rounds, site visits and also entrances to exhibition fairs in order to develop their business potentials and agree on tentative deals for establishing CPAs (Cooperation Partnership Agreements).
