EURADA is very pleased to inform you about the online conference SME support for the post-COVID era – to be held on the 29th of June 2020 from 13:00 to 15:00 (CET) – that will be organised by us.

This event is an online conference from ESSPO, an Interreg Europe project with the goal of addressing the efficiency of SME support policies and developing comprehensive support portfolios. These serve to identify and establish synergies between different services and to intelligently target relevant segments of the SME population. By focusing on enabling regional SMEs to grow and expand into national and international markets, this approach builds on well-known evidence showing how exporting SMEs are more resilient and adaptable to economic crises. In today’s context, with a view to the coming period of recovery, we believe that this experience is more valuable than ever.

Attendees will gain an excellent opportunity to familiarise themselves with innovative and effective SME support policies, as well as the impacts the project has had on its nine partner regions and what good practices the partners have exchanged for identifying the needs of SMEs.

Last but not least, we would like to announce the participation as keynote speaker of Christian Saublens, a prominent expert in this area with over 30 years of experience as a leading representative of regional interests in Brussels, in addition to being the founder of EURADA. He will address industrial policy, the green deal, the challenges facing the next programming period of European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF), and a mission-oriented approach to the Horizon Europe programme.
