On September 18-22, 2023, we participated in an economic mission to Singapore, which was the last outbound mission as part of the REC-N-COMP project. Our delegation, consisting of a representative of the Polish Automotive Group and a representative of PPHU MARCUS M.Bartoszek, had the opportunity to take part in many inspiring meetings, as well as establish business contacts and exchange knowledge. During the trip, we visited places and institutions that were related to the aim of the project: supporting the internationalization of European SMEs in the field of production technologies and the use of recycled composites.
We had the opportunity to participate in interesting events. We took part in Singapore Design Week, during which we participated in a networking meeting at the National Design Center and at the FIND – Design Fair Asia, where we learned about the latest achievements in the field of design, design and technology.
Another important point was the meeting with EuroCham (The European Chamber of Commerce) at the headquarters of the European Union Delegation in Singapore, during which we discussed the potential for cooperation between European and Singaporean companies and for European companies to invest in Asian markets.
A visit to the Environmental & Water Technology Center of Innovation (EWTCOI), focused on environmental technologies, helped us better understand recycling trends. At the end of the visit, we visited A*Star – Institute of Material Research and Engineering, a key research facility in Singapore, where we gained knowledge about the institute’s research and projects on composite materials. These visits showed how highly developed and widely implemented recycling-based technologies are in this country.
The visit to Singapore opened new development prospects for our activities in the field of composite technologies and recycling. We are convinced that the acquired knowledge and established contacts will contribute to the further development of our companies and help strengthen their position on international markets.
The mission took place as part of the REC-N-COMP project. The project aims to support the internationalization of European SMEs in the field of technology for the production and use of recycled composites. It is funded by the European Commission under the COSME / Clusters Go International Program (COS-CLUSINT-2020-3-01).
