The potential of the development of new technological solutions and the opportunities for SME’s to internationalise are huge. INNOWATER therefore developed specific activities to support the internationalisation of eco-innovative SMEs in the water sector in Europe.

INNOWATER innovation experts recently visited three promisins non-European markets. A small group of experts traveled to three promising countries and identifies the current market opportunities for innovative SMEs:

Mining industry in South Africa (March 2013)
Agri-/Horticulture in Mexico (April 2013)
Food Industry in China (
May 2013)

For each trip, a summary of the findings is available. On request, full reports of the business trips are also provided to European SMEs in the water sector. Additional to the reports, companies have the opportunity to be coached on doing business abroad. The internationalisation coaching is not restricted to business to the markets visited by INNOWATER. So if you could use some advice on entering other foreign markets, please do not hesitate to apply.
