The project meeting in Poznan, Poland, on the 19th-20th of April, gave partners the opportunity to meet and share the good practices selected, time to discuss the preparations of the upcoming study visits and update on project management and communication issues. 

Good Practice selection
The partnership has now selected the 21 Good Practices (3 per partner) to be presented in depth at the upcoming study visits. The selection is an interesting collection of a variety of innovative, well tested and proven to be successful initiatives/projects/programmes within three themes of internationalization of territories for the benefit of SME competitiveness: penetration of markets, attraction of investments and international partnerships. 

All partners will now go back home and present the good practices selected to their local stakeholders (LSG) and discuss which of them that are the most interesting for their city/region, prepare questions to the hosts in preparation for the study visits and decide on participation, which organisations to take part in the different study visits.

The good practices selected will within short be presented at the Compete In website.
