One’s roots - Looking to the future

Being proud of one’s roots and looking to the future

A consultancy firm with more than 25 years experience

International Développement Partenariat (IDP) has been specialized since 1991 in consulting for international companies wanting to penetrate targeted export markets especially in Central Europe, China and Asia.

This activity was largely carried out through ECIP and JOPP programs set up by the European Union (European Commission).

Globalization - And the European Commission


IDP and the European Commission on the same line

Globalization puts all companies, whether healthy or weak, in a risky situation. It is an awareness that the European Union has integrated in its approach.

This observation, which decided Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission to put at the disposal of enterprises of all types (SME, START-UP) the sum of 320 billion Euros.

25 years ago in full synergy with European Commission, IDP helped around 450 companies expand their international footprint in the Asian market.

Since its beginning IDP has been mandated by the European Commission. As a continuation of this synergy with the latter, IDP teams support European businesses to get the grants they may be entitled to.

The Strength of Optimism




The European programmes

In astrophysics, it is shown that if there is some chaos this one is necessary for harmony of the universe.

The situation remains exactly the same with European programmes. Our databases contain thousands of pages of information. IDP has a team of specialists who, with the assistance of European Commission experts, enables us to find the programme that best meets our clients’ projects.

  • Horizon 2020

  • Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020) – in addition to the private investment that this money will attract.

    It promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market.


  • COSME aims to make it easier for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to access finance in all phases of their lifecycle – creation, expansion, or business transfer.

    Thanks to EU support, businesses have easier access to guarantees, loans and equity capital. EU ‘financial instruments’ are channeled through local financial institutions in EU countries.

  • Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs

  • Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs aims at fostering the entrepreneurial spirit and cross-border trade in Europe by facilitating exchange of knowledge, experience and networking between entrepreneurs intending to start a business or having just started one, and experienced entrepreneurs by working alongside each other.

    The programme also aims at guiding businesses on how to overcome market and business obstacles, so that they can make the most of the European Single Market.
