Business partnership facility
Establish sustainable partnerships
The BPF is a financing facility that aims to encourage the Luxembourg / European private sector to establish partnerships with entities of developing countries in order to set up sustainable business projects. With an annual budget of 1 000 000 €, the facility is designed to co-finance private sector initiatives that contribute to the development and creation of jobs and/or technology transfer in developing countries. The co-financing in the form of a direct grant can amount up to 50% of the total budget of a project and cannot exceed the ceiling of 200 000 € (100 000 € for undertakings in the road freight transport sector).
The selection process is carried out through a call for projects organised in two phases.
