International funding tools
The international expansion of companies today is at the heart of the cluster's international strategy.
This international expansion is supported by dedicated programmes and targeted trade missions aimed at facilitating access for companies to non-European markets in order to find new commercial and technological partners.
A variety of tools have been developed by the cluster for this:
- The ITPP, International Technological Partnership Programme, includes financial and technical support to identify strategic partners around the world (joint development, joint marketing, distribution, etc.)
- The set-up and funding of international projects through strategic intercluster partnerships like the one with the CQDM (Quebec Consortium for Drug Discovery)
- International trade missions and attendance at trade shows
