* Promote cutting edge technologies inside and outside Europe and facilitate their application into international markets of other sectors;
* Explore and promote international market opportunities and enable international matchmaking;
* Facilitate SME members towards specific third countries;
* Mobilise public and private financing for the development of the Internationalisation Strategy Plan developed within SpaceWave;
