Business partnership facility

Creating sustainable partnerships

The BPF is a financing facility initiated and financed by the Luxembourg government through the Luxembourg Cooperation 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 €1,000,000 to co-finance private sector initiatives that contribute to development and job creation in developing countries and/or technology transfer.

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.
