All this free of charge!

Our internationalisation Tools :

A database linking businesses together that allows you to:
  • Share your company profile and partnership proposal (offer or request commercial, technological and research partnerships)
  • Search the profiles of foreign companies matching your target

We facilitate and support networking and negotiation with companies listed in the database.

In practice
Enterprise Europe Brussels advisors will help you to create your company profile, as well as the profile of your ideal partner. Those profiles will be shared through the network database in more than 60 countries.

Profiles are anonymous in order to protect your business from competitors.

We will inform you whenever a foreign company expresses an interest in your profile. You will then decide whether or not to contact those companies and initiate co-operation.

Looking for partners in technology or R&D?

Contact us! We provide step by step support.


Create your own custom E-alert for cooperation opportunities with foreign companies

How does it work?

  2. Select the cooperation type you are looking for (commercial/technological/R&D)
  3. Check your mailbox: email alerts will be sent regularly with proposals for cooperation from inside and outside Europe

Interested in a commercial partnership?


A free and comparative diagnosis of the performance of your SME in terms of innovation management (innovation for products, services or business models) can help you find answers to your questions on the competitiveness of your company, through its innovative activities or innovation process.

The ability to manage innovation characterises companies with a strong growth: it represents their ability to translate ideas into promising projects and ultimately to put new products or services on the market. Knowing how to manage innovation gives you a competitive advantage.

Contact us (ban@impulse.irisnet.be) in order to gain access to this diagnosis based on IMP3rove, whose tools and methodology enable us to assess the strengths and weaknesses of innovation management within a company, and to compare it with the best European companies in their industry. The tool is also combined with an individual consulting approach.
