INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES - The New EC Frameworks and the BREXIT...
Thu 16 March 2017, 08:30 – 11:00 GMT
Enterprise Ireland and ConsultingIreland invite you to a FREE business seminar on 16th March. This morning event will identify some of the very sizeable untapped opportunities - estimated close to €1Trillion per annum - for those Irish organisations (Private, Public and NGOs) who are actively seeking to develop and deliver international services, goods and infrastructure across a range of sectors including: Agri/Food, Construction, Energy, Environment, Education, Fintech, Health, ICT, Tourism, Trade and Transport.
The immediate opportunity
The European Commission has just announced the opening of the new Framework tender that covers the next 4-6 year period – with an estimated value of €650m. Applications for this tender will close in April/May so organisations need to mobilise quickly to become one of the pre-selected firms for future projects. Inclusion in these Frameworks will ensure a pivotal position in helping shape future global business by developing the policies, strategies and ‘downstream’ projects that will emerge in both the public and private sector.
This seminar will:
(a) Show the main steps needed to engage with this very immediate ‘Framework’ opportunity.
(b) Provide assistance in preparing the required documentation that will enable Irish organisations to be invited and join some of the Framework teams/consortia.
(c) ConsultingIreland will identify the possible lead partners for the Irish organisations under this new Framework opportunity and for other future bids.
We will also briefly discuss how;
1. To capitalise on the 200,000 daily tenders that are not only published by the EC, but by the many other funding sources such as the World Bank, EBRD, United Nations etc.
2. Explain how organisations can join our new cross-sectoral bidding team to actively pursue future international projects with our International partners in the likes of France, Spain, Italy, Norway and Hungary.
3. Discuss the impact of BREXIT when over 4,000 UK companies exit this area of EC funded business and the significant opportunities that this will present to Irish companies. Although BREXIT is already having an effect on the distribution of EC Funded business, the benefits have not trickled down to Irish Organisations as yet.
