Since 2010, Beta has been developing links with funders, companies and government departments in Brazil, as a network to support technology transfer from the UK to Brazil. On behalf of a multinational company, headquartered in Europe, we investigated the potential to transfer a unique technology to Brazil. This involved identifying and engaging with key stakeholders in Brazil, which included both commercial partners and public sector funders. We provided a valuable insight into the Brazilian market and also engaged with both the UK and Brazilian governments to foster support for the project at senior levels.
