We are a non-profit organisation based in Brussels (Belgium) and our mission is to facilitate and promote research, cooperation and development activities within the EU and between Europe and other regions worldwide
INTERNATIONALISATION BY PROJECTS
At CONEXX-EU we have developed a 3-step internationalisation methodology that we call ” internationalisation by projects “. Firstly, get to know the organisations we work with, analyse their needs and establish an internationalisation strategy with them. Secondly, we offer the training on accessing the funding programme of the European Commission that best suits their needs. Finally we accompany our partners in the design and implementation of their projects.
We support the design and implementation processes of the projects in all their phases. By the end of this process, the participant institutions know how the European funding instruments function, and they own the capacities to apply for these programs as well as having new international partners.
