We organized an online thematic study visit to discuss the situation of SMEs in the Podkarpackie Voivodeship and in the border regions of Spain, Lithuania, Hungary, and Italy, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Tools and programmes supporting SMEs were discussed, with particular emphasis on those related to reducing the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Online Action Planning Workshop

During this workshop, each partner had two tasks - to present its Action Plan and to discuss the feedback and suggestions on Action Plans within the pair. The partnership was divided into 3 breakout rooms as follow:

  1. Poland 1 (ACEP) – Spain (BURGOS & SODEBUR)
  2. Lithuania (Klaipéda Mun & Klaipéda ID) – Poland 2 (RRDA)
  3. Hungary (PANNON EGTC) – Italy (LOMB)

After this workshop, all partners received general feedback on the Action Plans:

  • Action Plans are to be easy to read for all, also those not knowing the region or the Policy instrument, esp. Executive summary
  • Formal adoption/approval by the policy-responsible body of the action plans: for which Action Plan is relevant? 
  • Operational and feasible actions are needed, also including who is doing what, intense monitoring is expected by Lead Partner in Phase 2
  • Finalization of the Action Plan is still ahead, elaboration is a long process.
  • The final version has to be designed (photos, nice outlook).
