Global markets are an important source of growth for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). However, only 600,000 SMEs employing roughly 6 million people export goods outside the EU. Increasing the internationalisation of SMEs and helping them access third markets is crucial for Europe’s competitiveness, economic growth and innovation.

With this aim in mind, Ateval is participating in the project ADMANTEX2i “Advanced Manufacturing and Advanced Textile Materials going international to strengthen resilience and to empower industrial recovery”. The project is co-funded by the European Comission under the COSMEClusters Go International programme.

The main goal of the survey is to identify companies’ needs, previous experiences and interest for going international. It aims at identifying the main target countries, which belogs to three areas: USA (east/west coasts, mid-west area such as Chicago and south including Texas/Florida/Georgia), Asia (potentially China, Japan or Taiwan) and Australia or Canada.

The results of this survey will contribute to the definition of the internationalization strategy. In addition, companies taking part to this survey will be firstly asked to attend the business mission activities and all the other opportunities that will be developed by the ADMANTEX2i project.

Filling the survey will take about 15 minutes of your time.
