The Matchmaking mission is being organized in coordination with Sebrae (Serviço Brasileiro de Apoio à Micro e Pequena Empresa), CNI (Confederação Nacional da Indústria) and ABRELPE (Associação Brasileira de Empresas de Limpeza Pública), on the premises of FIMAI Ecomondo International Trade Fair.
CESO is part of an international consortium implementing the project “Low Carbon Business Action in Brazil”. Funded by the European Union, it is expected to last 36 months.
The successful implementation of this project is expected to enhance industrial technology cooperation between Brazilian SME and EU technology suppliers within the scope of low emission technologies.
To meet this overall objective, an effective matchmaking between Brazilian Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and European technology providers is currently taking place in targeted sectors in multiple locations across Brazil. In a second phase, these strategic partnerships shall materialise in concrete joint project proposals leading to commercial relations and transactions.
