The ELAN PROGRAMME (European and Latin American Business Services and Innovation) is a European Union (EU) initiative that seeks to increase and diversify the EU economic presence in Latin America, by meeting the Latin American demand for knowledge and innovative technology. ELAN also aims to boost the opportunities that both markets offer for European and Latin American SMEs, through two interdependent strategies:
- European and Latin American Business Services (ELAN Biz): Whose main objective is to provide up-to-date and comprehensive information services to European SMEs interested in doing business in strategic Latin American countries.
- European & Latin American Technology Based Business Network (ELAN Network): Whose main purpose is to generate technology-based business opportunities between European and Latin American SMEs.
