Profile

Naxta combines different complementary experiences in designing projects and providing technical assistance in the fields of European integration, international cooperation and internationalisation.

We serve the needs of public authorities, territorial and economic development agencies, resource centres, business representative organisations wishing to strengthen and develop international activities.

Naxta develops and delivers project de- sign, technical assistance, project management and monitors opportunities within European and international development programmes.

To achieve an efficient transfer of knowledge and practices we provide specialist technical assistance for international cooperation initiatives implemented by companies, governmental and non-governmental organisations.

Furthermore, in the context of the ever more complex dynamics of a global market, we work to facilitate the process of internationalisation providing tools for promoting existing resources and identifying new potential opportunities.
