The GRESS partnership started a series of virtual Action Plan development workshops
The GRESS partnership started a series of virtual Action Plan development workshops, which are designed around one particular policy instrument. During u to 3 sessions per policy instrument, the aim is to dive deep into the identified challenges and to find feasible solutions.
Kristiansand hosted the first web event with the focus on its Business Development Plan (BDP). After a brief presentation of the highlights of Kristiansand's policy instrument, the partners discussed several aspects of it.
The attraction of investors, access to finance and sufficient support for green startups has been among the most discussed topics. It became apparent that the partner regions face similar challenges.
The partners shared their experiences, god and worst practice, and first ideas on potential solutions have been generated.
The second session of the Kristiansand workshop will continue working on the ideas and further develop them.
