Pannon EGTC

Invitation to the final event of project Inter Ventures

Pannon European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation’s (Pannon EGTC) INTER VENTURES - "Policies to promote the internationalization of SMEs for more competitive regional ecosystems in border areas of the EU" Interreg Europe project is coming to an end.
Invitation to the final event of project Inter Ventures

The main goal of the project is to promote the internationalization of small and medium-sized enterprises in the border regions of the European Union, under the leadership of the Pannon EGTC and with the cooperation of 8 European partners (German, Spanish, Italian, Lithuanian, Polish), thus contributing to the increase of their competitiveness. Within the framework of the project taking place between 2019-2023, the partners share their experiences on the subject, and elaborate the final document called the Action Plan for each of the five regions included in the partnership, on how policy instruments could be used to help the internationalization of businesses.

Pannon EGTC’s Action Plan focuses on the creation of a program that helps less prepared SMEs to become international, and to have a direct impact on the Hungarian-Croatian crossborder cooperation program between 2021-27 (HU-HR CBC) to achieve the publication of calls for proposals (such as the B-light program), which help the internationalization of businesses.
