The support of BEN members in their internationalization projects is one of the statutory tasks of BEN. For this purpose, Task Force Internationalization (TFI) was founded. On the one hand, the TFI is to make the already existing export promotion instruments of the federal government, the federal states, and the EU Commission more accessible to the BEN members and, on the other hand, to plan and implement their own projects. These include the Urban Energy Forum and Urban Innovation.
The Urban Energy Forum is a side event of the annual Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue. The top issues of the global energy transition are discussed with players from politics, business and science. More information at www.urbanenergyforum.com/.
Urban Innovation brings Berlin-based companies and start-ups together with decision-makers, investors, and sales, and business partners from New York, London, Singapore and Beijing. More information at www.urban-energy-mobility.com.
Based on the results of the task force meetings, we plan joint market development trips abroad. In the past, trips to South Africa, Poland and Turkey have taken place for this purpose, including a trip to accompany the Berlin Senator for Economic Affairs.
