SME Workshop: Supporting SMEs for new business opportunities-2019

The main objectives of the SME workshops are an innovation process around “sustainable food production” to identify challenges and solutions in an accelerated innovation process building on the experiences of a previous project.

The first step is a creative problem-solving process to identify the challenges and needs of SMEs related to sustainable food production in Europe. The second step will identify trends as growth opportunities and apply the new knowledge to create innovative solutions, discover niche markets, promote innovation ecosystems (networks), and improve competitiveness. In the final step, “knowledge transfer”, 6 SME workshops will be held in Germany, Spain, Poland, UK, Finland and Italy. Lectures are combined with creative activities that yield the intended outcome and match the objectives: to create new business opportunities for food SMEs in an inspiring, stimulating and accelerated way. Additionally, job brokerage for students will be included.
