EU launches "Ready2GO" project to support SME internationalisation


The call for applicants is open until 31 March 2017:


Ready2GO project


This project will provide coaching and support to 80 selected SMEs wishing to expand their business outside the EU. Ready2Go is intended to benefit a broad range of industries (including ICT, environment, intelligent energy) and to ensure that innovative SMEs in space-related domains are also amongst the targeted sectors. It is a major opportunity for SMEs providing EO services to receive hands-on support to go international, including tailored coaching to develop international business plans and specific B2B matchmaking opportunities.


The focus will be on five target countries and markets: Cameroon, Canada, Chile, India and United States – with some flexibility to consider Argentina or Egypt as alternatives. This first test project will then contribute to the preparation of a Guidebook on Internationalisation training.
