KETs4Dual-Use 2.0

Kort intro

Key Enabling Technologies for Dual-Use – KETs4Dual-Use 2.0. Projektet er bevilget primo marts 2021 og forventes at starte medio 2021.

KETs4Dual-Use 2.0 projektet er en forlængelse af et forprojekt, som havde til formål at identificere potentielle 3. markeder for europæiske dual-use projekter. Forprojektet var igang over 18 måneder fra juni 2018, og bød på fact finding missions til USA, Canada, Singapore og UAE. På baggrund af forprojektet, gik konsortiet sammen om en forlængelse af projektet med det formål at tage virksomhederne med på business missions til Canada, Singapore og UAE, da der på de tre markeder vurderes at være gode muligheder for europæiske virksomheder med dual-use produkter og services. Via de fire fact findings mission i forbindelse med forprojektet, fik konsortiepartnerne etableret gode kontakter til en bred palette af aktører, som vi i det næste projektforløb vil række ud til når de tre business missions skal planlægges.

 

Projektet løber over 24 måneder fra medio 2021 – medio 2023.

CenSec er med i projektet da det giver vores medlemsvirksomheder muligheder og adgang til nye markeder via de tre planlagte business missions.

Background and purpose

The EU KETs4Dual Use 2.0 project is a continuation of a Phase 1 project EU KETs4Dual-Use Worldwide.

The proposal aims to support ecosystem where European startups /SMEs will be given an opportunity to identify the optimal ways of bringing their solutions into both the European and Global Dual Use market value chain.

The securing of business agreements to develop joint collaborative project between the Partnership SME members and business and other relevant stakeholders from target countries (Singapore, Canada, the UAE) will lead to increase exports, investment opportunities and will generate employment for European businesses.

The Partnership has 500 SMEs with qualified competencies in the field of dual-use technologies acting as primary clients for project services. The main objective is to set up business collaboration and stimulate demand for start-ups/SMEs in target countries to gain cross-border diversification and sectoral synergies representing both the supplier (technology/service provider) and demand (end-user).

Focus groups dedicated to KETs for Dual-use Applications and Resilient Business Models focusing on COVID19 will be established and specific business development training will be provided to support SMEs in global competition.

To unlock growth and investment opportunities for European dual-use SMEs via international collaboration, 3 international missions to target countries will be organised. SMEs will benefit from the support of international business advisors in target countries who will organise individualised pre-qualified B2B meetings with pertinent stakeholders from Security & Defence sectors in order to generate business & collaborative R&D agreements and to access to available funding opportunities.

Key stages for dual-use SMEs are the following: Focus groups, training sessions, international missions, business development, bilateral business agreements & funding opportunities identification.
