THE NEXT SOCIETY has recruited 20 European cluster managers to meet their MENA counterparts during the second edition of the #TechDays.
#TechDays are two-day events in MENA countries that encourage inter-cluster collaboration between Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, Tunisia and their European counterparts to establish roadmaps for future collaborations. Participants present their strategies and portfolio of business and cooperation opportunities.
The event will provide a unique opportunity for representatives of European cluster organisations interested in collaborating with MENA countries and in particular Tunisia to explore possible areas of common interest for cooperation and complementarities, in terms of sector, value chain and market for their SMEs and other companies. Letters of intent, memoranda of understanding and other types of partnership agreements should be explored with roadmaps on how to initiate and sustain collaborations.
These #TechDays are logically more focused on the Tunisian market, so they are interesting for those who see potential business opportunities in this country. THE NEXT SOCIETY will cover the expenses of 20 European cluster managers (flight, accommodation and meals).
