Launch of the Sustainable Islands International Programme

05 October 2017

Drumossie Hotel, Inverness - 10-4pm

In October 2017, Scottish Enterprise, Highlands & Islands Enterprise and Scottish Development International are launching a major new 3-year sustainable energy programme to assist Scottish-based organisations with technical, market and sales expertise. The programme aims to help you develop and export your sustainable energy products, systems and services into international markets. Key to this programme is forming partnerships with other companies in your sector, in order to share market insights, experiences and access new sales opportunities.

At this free launch event, you will learn about the programme and the practical support being offered, including:

  • Market intelligence on tenders and pre-tender information.
  • Insights into routes to key markets
  • Briefings on procurement process used by development banks.
  • Training in writing bids for international tenders.
  • Guidance on which existing support services exist (SE, HIE, DIT Export Finance, etc).
  • Supported international trade missions to meet key customers and/or funding bodies.
  • Organisation of consortia to respond to specific tender opportunities.

There will be opportunities to network and collaborate with other companies, to start the development of working clusters who will receive support through the programme.

Preference will be given to delegates from Scottish based companies who are interested in exporting their products. Due to the popularity of the launch event, places are limited to two people per organisation in the first instance.
