DITECFER | Project co-financed under Tuscany POR FESR 2014-2020

The Call "Internationalization 2015" by Tuscany Region aims to support the realisation of internationalization investments by SMEs in markets outside EU through a 50% co-funding.



DITECFER applied on behalf of a group of Associates. The project was awarded 5th and was implemented from October 2015 to March 2017. The final investment of about 86,000 € was co-funded under the Tuscany POR FESR 2014-2020 for about 43,000 €.

The activities realised and co-funded under the Call concern:

- NATRANS Rail 2015 Fair (Abu Dhabi, October 25-27th 2015)
- MIDDLE EAST RAIL 2016 Fair (Dubai, March 8-9th 2016) as Silver Sponsor

- B2B at the Eurasia Rail 2016 Fair (Istanbul, March 3-4th 2016) in the framework of the fair participation with the Pistoia Chamber of Commerce
- Incoming of a Delegation composed by 25 representatives from the Turkish Railways and the main public and private railway industries (Pistoia, November 21-25th 2016)

The project "Think Rail Buy Tuscany" reached the strategic and operational target to accompany to new markets a wide number of Tuscan SMEs operating in the railway supply chain. Thanks to the DITECFER support in the scouting activities and to the co-funding, the companies have experienced markets never planned up to then with reduced investments and risks.

Also, thanks to the project the companies could measure their potential on the foreign markets and their capacity to meet a foreign market demand also under the point of view of internal organisation to devote to international activities.

The Call has provided DITECFER with a strategic and operational experience in the SMEs internationalization field. Such experience has been capitalised on the EU Call COSME "Cluster Go International" 2016 and the project "PERES-Promoting European Rail Excellence outSide EU" DITECFER awarded as Coordinator.
