Business partnership facility

Creating sustainable partnerships

The BPF is a financing facility initiated and financed by the Luxembourg government through the Luxembourg Cooperation. The facility aims to encourage the Luxembourg and European private sector to join forces with partners in developing countries to set up sustainable business projects. The facility has an annual budget of one million Euros to co-finance private sector initiatives that contribute to development and job creation in developing countries and/or technology transfer. All sectors of activity are eligible for BPF as long as the proposed project contributes to the achievement of the SDGs

Co-financing in the form of a grant can reach up to 50% of a project's total budget and must not exceed the threshold of €200,000 (capped at €100,000 for companies engaged in road haulage activities for hire or reward).

The selection is made through a two-stage call for projects : preselection through the application form downloadable from the BPF website and then, for successful applications following that first stage, submission of a detailed proposal.
