Overview about our projects

To date SPECTARIS has implemented a number of EU-Asia projects within the framework of the European Union's Asia Invest programme and EU-Latin America within the framework of the AL-Invest Programme.These matchmaking events have proven to be a very effective and cost efficient way for companies to make contact with potential partners and gain a greater insight into foreign markets.
