Find appropriate partners
Depending on the cooperation types you are interested in, thanks to Enterprise Europe Network you can get access to many business opportunities:
• Technology offers (actual high-tech Innovations)
• Technology requests (cooperation requests)
• R&D information and co-operation opportunities
Identify your technology need/potential, Enterprise Europe Network helps you to find the right partner.
The Technology Database
The Technology Database contains details of technologies/know-how on offer and applications for which new technology/expertise is required. It will allow you to find a potential partner (supplier or customer) at an appropriate level of development:
• Development phase - laboratory tested
• Available for demonstration - field tested
• Already on the market
Be proactive in the promotion of new and innovative technologies
Each company or research institution offering or requesting an innovative technology has to fill in a technology profile submission form. Beside a short abstract and a more detailed description of the technology, further information is requested as follows:
• Stage of development (for offers)
• Type of cooperation sought (technical co-operation, joint venture, licence agreement, manufacturing agreement, commercial agreement with technical assistance)
• Innovative aspects
• Type of partner sought (e.g. industry, SME, R&D institute, multiplier, etc.)
• Technical specifications (for requests)
Through the database, you can target specific countries and industry sectors.
How it works
EEN Japan can only accept profiles from Japanese companies. EU SMEs interested to submit a profile, please contact us first and we will introduce you to your relevant local EEN representative.
Send us the technology profile submission form filled in with your technology offer or request.
Once the technology profile is validated, it will be published without the company details in the online database as well as in the technology e-Alerts (via email), and be distributed to potential partners through the Network organisations in order to raise expressions of interest.
Any feedback will be forwarded to you and contact details provided. Then you decide on the further steps with regard to the organisation(s) interested in your profile (email, phone or personal meetings).
Fill in and send us the technology profile submission form, we will be most happy to start the support process. The service is completely free of charge, look at the commitment agreement.
If your company wants to offer its know-how/expertise, develops a technology or an innovation and wishes to make it available to end-users abroad in order to carry out a technology transfer.
If your company needs to solve a problem it has encountered, or needs to find one or several partner(s) who will transfer the technology or know-how needed.
The BBS database is updated with new profiles on a weekly basis. Subscribe free to the Technology e-Alert service to stay up-to-date with the newest technologies. You will then automatically receive the latest technologically innovative offers and requests matching the keywords you have chosen.
