New technologies, such as blockchain, are bringing about substantial changes in transactions, international transport logistics and regulatory control, challenging business models as well as traditional border control mechanisms and public policies.

Blockchain is a secure, virtual database that provides information about transactions taking place within a group, such as a corporation, a network of suppliers, an investment pool or an international supply chain. This platform provides a distributed, unalterable, encrypted and extremely secure record, which is at the same time transparent and accessible to all participants.

NOVExport’s Acceleration Platform is now available

Access the platform and start benefiting from all the internationalization support services we offer.

The platform to accelerate exports and support the internationalization of the SMEs to the environmental, maritime, and agricultural markets of Latin America is now available through the following link https://crv.novexport-sudoe.eu/.

Registration and access to all training resources, marketing support and data management for sales forecasting and feasibility studies that we make available to our companies and in collaboration with our partners in Spain, France and Portugal, is free and is available to all SMEs in the Sudoe space.

This virtual resource center represents the backbone of the Interreg Sudoe project NOVExport (SOE3/P2/F0970), whose objective is to support SMEs in southwestern Europe in their development towards the agricultural, environmental and maritime markets of Latin American countries, through the technological maturation of their products and services through the use of spatial and digital data, to meet the needs and challenges of these export markets.

The virtual resource center is designed to offer training services, marketing support and data analysis, with the aim of increasing the competitiveness of SMEs in the space and digital technology sector. These services are offered through 3 different spaces:

  • A digital data storage area pre-structured around the data format and its sector of origin (agriculture, maritime, environment) of transnational data.
  • An international business space for the storage of market and opportunity studies and a database of SMEs and their skills that encourages collaboration.
  • A digital training space that will allow SMEs to acquire the basic concepts of commercialization and internationalization.

Through the local hubs of innovation and export of the project distributed in France (Montpellier and the French Basque Country), Spain ( Badajoz, Bilbao and Madrid) and Portugal ( Coimbra) the ad-hoc services for SMEs available on the platform will be offered virtual.

The objective of these centers is to develop a favourable environment for the maturation of business projects and to promote a co-creation approach that brings together providers of digital and space technologies and application markets, while maintaining an internationalization focus.
