On 7 April 2022, the AEWEN consortium held a webinar for European SMEs interested in internationalisation in North and West Africa. More than 50 participants attended the webinar.
The first part of the webinar was dedicated to the presentation of the AEWEN project (Africa Europe Water & Energy Network), during which the objectives of the project, the priority countries, the main activities that will be carried out and the catalogue were explained in detail. AEWEN is a network open to European and African companies interested in developing water and green energy solutions. Companies interested in being part of the AEWEN network can still join by filling in this form. They will then be contacted by the AEWEN team.
The second part of the webinar, focused on learning about how to succeed in Africa. Various approaches were shared during a round table discussion held with four European SMEs: ABN Engineering and Consulting, HydroScan Group, IRIDRA Srl and Sasso Srl.
Speakers answered questions about their expectations before exporting, the main challenges they faced and the solutions they applied to achieve a positive result. They also shared their strategies and experiences in the Tunisian, Moroccan and Senegalese markets.
In the framework of the AEWEN project, a series of webinar will be offered to provide tools and answer questions that European companies may have when internationalising in these three countries. In addition, missions to the countries will be organised. Stay tuned for new dates!
