New programme to support SMEs with Earth Observation technologies develop international business
Space2Waves, a new European Funded project, has launched a Call of Interest to support SMEs with earth observation products and services sector to grow their business internationally in the blue growth arena.
The Space2Waves Internationalisation Programme will assist up to 30 European SMEs to develop business opportunities for earth observation technologies, products and services in Australia, Canada, South Africa and the United Arab Emirates.
The support package will include workshops focusing on space and blue growth markets and opportunities as well as individual coaching sessions and the opportunity to take part in 3-5 day matchmaking missions in the identified countries with up to Euro 1250 in travel support (or equivalent, subject to travel restrictions in force).

Earth Observation technologies represent a solution to many of the issues the maritime environment is currently facing. They contribute to the implementation of a sustainable blue economy as they are one of the most available, effective and cost-efficient technologies to explore, monitor, control and study the exploitation of oceans and their resources.
Space2Waves aims to implement an internationalisation programme that will provide European SMEs using or creating earth observation technologies in the blue growth sector with a tailor-made programme to access new international markets to develop their business.
