Development & Connectivity
Cooperans is a French consultancy specializing in connectivity projects between Europe, Asia and Africa.
We work on connectivity projects and other international, national and regional development strategies.
We advise NGOs, institutions, companies and leaders on their development strategy in Europe, the Indo-Pacific, and other regions.
We support social and environment-friendly projects. We believe that economic development and sustainability are strongly associated. We help our customers to adopt good governance practices.
The development of the New Silk Road project, motivated by China, has prompted other powers to launch competing or complementary projects, such as the Blue Dot network initiated by the United States, or the Europe-Asia connectivity strategy.
The European Union has also launched new partnerships with India and Japan.
Cooperans identifies the opportunities offered by these programmes and supports businesses and local authorities in their response to these opportunities.
National and regional development strategies
To revitalize certain regions, build new cities, and construct or modernize infrastructure, states have launched various development programmes. For example, in the Philippines there is the Build! Build! Build! programme, in Central and Eastern Europe there is the Three Seas Initiative, and in China there is the Hainan Special Economic Zone.
Cooperans helps companies to understand and take advantage of the many opportunities offered by these initiatives. Our consultancy also supports local governments in the implementation of their development strategies.
The European Union has launched several programs, such as the ERDF, the European Green Deal or the Horizon Europe framework program, to accelerate innovation, ecological transition and development in Europe.
Our firm identifies calls for projects that meet the expectations of our clients and we assist them in their responses.
We work with NGOs, institutions and businesses to build a more competitive, fairer and greener Europe.
Cities of future
Do you know where are Amhedabad, Chittagong or Lahore? In 2050, however, these cities will be among the most populous in the world. Faced with rapid urbanization, the States of Africa and South Asia must develop new strategies to accommodate an ever-growing population, provide them with housing and employment, while preserving their natural resources and their environment.
The challenge of sustainable urbanization is shared by all cities in the world, and Cooperans offers to support these cities in their transition.
Our firm also works on challenges related to the attractiveness of cities and territories, particularly cultural and heritage issues.
