BEAM call for applications, open to companies: Planning of international growth promoting sustainable development in emerging markets

Application period: Fri 09.10.2015 - Mon 16.11.2015

Applications must be submitted through the Tekes electronic application service. Applicants must use the Planning for Global growth instrument application form, for which a link to the BEAM programme should be selected.

Under the BEAM programme, a call for applications is being launched for SMEs planning international growth that promotes sustainable development in developing countries. In their preparations for international business, applicant companies must have new or existing innovations – the potential and impact of such innovations on emerging and developing country markets will be evaluated. Understanding of the target market forms the basis of successful operations; in the case of developing countries, this means knowledge of the local culture, practices, business environment and funding opportunities in particular.

BEAM will finance projects in which the company evaluates its potential for international growth in emerging markets, enhances its understanding of markets and develops its capabilities for sustainable growth, while building the necessary partnerships in the target countries. The company should have the resources necessary for international growth targeted at developing countries. In addition to finding business opportunities, BEAM-funded projects should also seek to enhance wellbeing in emerging markets.
