Maribor Development Agency, the lead partner of project INTRA (programme Interreg Europe) proposed changes to the OP for implementation of the EU Cohesion Policy 2014-2020 in East Slovenia. As the result, the Ministry for Economic Development and Technology of the Republic of Slovenia prepared the Internationalisation vouchers.
“Without certificates of quality, the doors to the foreign market will not open. Vouchers significantly lowered the costs of obtaining the certificates, so we could invest more resources in production.”
Robert Koler, CEO at Vamar TT

In 2019 VamarTT applied for a voucher in the value of 8,052 EUR to obtain ISO 9001: 2015 and ISO 14001: 2015 certificates. With the vouchers they were able to finance two certificates with the same about of their own funding, as though they’d get only one.
