Innorobo Resources: Trade Missions

What is a trade mission @Innorobo?

A coordinated overseas trip involving meetings with government officials, institutional representatives and companies from the local business community, or any combination thereof.

Why do we offer Trade Missions?

In our ongoing commitment to helping robotics innovations go to market, we assist robotics and tech companies in growing internationally, and put potential users or buyers in touch with the right robotics partners. Each mission is tailored around specific business opportunities, in line with our partners’ and clients’ needs.

Based on their strategic growth objectives and the nature of their activity, each program is designed to match participants’ aims and priorities with business opportunities in the target market.

What kind of Trade Missions?


sector-focused Trade Mission includes representatives from a major industry sector, building the visit around a specific trade show, congress or focus area (i.e. Robotics & Education).


These Trade Missions target countries or regions with high growth potential related to their trade or investment policies and opportunities. Visits will provide an introduction to local robotics-sector players and initiatives in order to strengthen business relations with these regions.

Whatever their focus, these trips can be either Incoming or Outgoing Trade Missions:

-Incoming Trade Missions: welcoming foreign companies and officials to France and Europe

-Outgoing Trade Missions: taking French and/or European companies abroad
