CONSORTEX promotes the creation of six Export Consortia involving SMEs from five countries in the Atlantic Area

The project aims to promote the competitiveness and internationalisation of the Shipbuilding sector

CONSORTEX project is promoting a set of meetings starting today, 19th of November, in Vigo, with the aim to gathering the companies interested in integrating the Interregional Exporting Consortia.

Over the past months, the project partners conducted a survey on the SMEs of the Shipbuilding sector and its ancillary industry, in their respective countries. The contact with entrepreneurs and the information collected through the survey allowed the partnership to identify 35 companies with a potential interest in being part of the Consortia.

This first meeting aims to promote the presentation of the methodology of incorporation of Exporting Consortia, putting companies from different countries in contact. The meetings will be equally important as companies will have the chance to present their expectations, objectives and market strategy. In some cases, the sessions will also be attended by a legal expert who will clarify all issues related to the creation of Interregional Consortia and what are the main advantages of companies working together to address the international market.

After the first round of meetings, the companies involved in the Deck, Vessel Design, Accommodation, Engine Room, Bridge and Offshore Energy Consortia will participate on a second meeting, in February 2020, to outline their Business Plan.

Consortia are expected to be formally established in May 2020 at the Plenary Session of Interregional Exporting Consortia, promoted by CONSORTEX partners at the NAVALIA fair in Vigo.

CONSORTEX aims to form six Consortia, consisting of European SMEs specialised in the manufacture of built-in packages for vessels and marine structures (Deck, Vessel Design, Accommodation, Engine Room, Bridge and Offshore Energy).  Led by Foro Marítimo Vasco, this project has a total budget of over € 1.6 million until the end in June 2020.
