About the partners of the Internationalization Program

In 2020, the tecnoPARQ obtained accreditation as Softlanding Hub from ENRICH in Brazil, which broadens its possibility of attracting companies from the European Union that are interested in doing business or settling in the country. Also, it increases the visibility in the European market, expanding, thus, the international partnerships. The ENRICH network is an initiative of the European Union. The purpose of the program is to create a network to strengthen Brazil-Europe cooperation in the areas of research, innovation, and business through the exchange of innovative practices. 

Also, tecnoPARQ is a member of the International Association of Science Parks and Areas of Innovation (IASP). It is a global network of science parks and innovation areas whose mission is to drive the growth, internationalization, and effectiveness of its members worldwide. 

Another international axis is the participation in the Land2Land platform of the National Association of  Entities Promoting Innovative Enterprises (Anprotec), which promotes an efficient connection with several other global R&D centers. To deal with all these issues, this year the TecnoPARQ Internationalization Program was created to strengthen global partnerships in order to generally enhance entrepreneurship.
