Retrace is a European Project in the field of circular economy, which is part of the Interreg Europe programme that promotes European territorial cooperation. The searches for connections, placing people at the centre of the project, or acting locally to develop circular economy, are some of its basic principles.
Interreg POCTEFA Project led by ACCIÓ with participation by Beaz, that aims to analyse concealed international leading companies (INML) to define a strategy to allow internationalisation of such SMEs to be accelerated.
In addition to ACCIÓ, Agència per a la Competitivitat de l’Empresa, and Beaz, BIC Crescendo y Andorra Desenvolupament i Inversió, ACTUA is also participating in the project.
There estimated to be more than 1000 concealed champions in Europe, SMEs which are world leaders in very specific market niches and, often, driving forces of the local economy. This is a type of companies that Beaz knows well, as it drives the project DRIVE Concealed Champions in Bizkaia.
For two years, the consortium studied INML companies in Spain, Andorra and France in order to detect the variables and common patterns that have positioned them as leaders. A cross-border service shall subsequently be implemented to support both the concealed champions as well as those that may become ones.
The project has been co-financed at 65% by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through the Interreg V-A Spain-France-Andorra programme (POCTEFA 2014-2020).
