We pave the way and help you gain a foothold in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), one of Europe’s leading regions. As a competent partner in a number of European support networks, helping local organisations enter markets abroad and assisting their foreign counterparts in NRW is our business.

On behalf of EU, national and regional bodies, we provide services for the benefit of companies, especially small and medium-sized enterprises, as well as universities and research institutions. Our clients come from NRW, throughout Germany and abroad.
