SME Representatives Abroad

The initiative « V.I.E. mutualisés » of Aerospace Valley

With start mid-2010 Aerospace Valley has put in place an innovative initiative in order to efficiently support its member SME in their international development strategy. In the frame of this French International Postgraduate Internship Program by UBIFrance young engineers (aged 28 or less) are affected for a period up to two years to groups between 2 and 4 enterprises. These so-called “V.I.E.” are in charge of the commercial development of their companies. Each V.I.E. is locally hosted in the premises of a major industrial member of Aerospace Valley already present in the respective country.

Today around 40 SME-companies of Aerospace Valley have benefited from this initiative. In total 13 of these V.I.E., placed in one of the six countries on the map below, are either currently in place, or have recently ended their mission.
