Project summary What is RuralGrowth? The aim of RuralGrowth is to improve the policies related to small rural businesses within the visitor economy. To achieve this, the scheme fosters the uptake of the green innovative solutions serving as a launchpad for the SME competitiveness and a driver for the sustainable development in the rural regions. Beneficiaries are not only the visitor economy related SME’s but also the inhabitants in general because of the expected socio-economic impact. €1,483,920.00 from 1 Apr 2016 to 30 Sep 2020 Topic SME competitiveness Get to knowpartners and lessons learned Project presentation video     Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? Economic Development and Innovation Operation Programme Increasing the competitiveness of SMEs is targeted by Priority Axis 1 of Hungary’s national level Economic Development and Innovation Operational Programme with 1.344.675.091 EUR allocated to this PA. Specific Objective 1.7 targets boosting a marketable and cooperative SME sector through enhancing the cooperation intensity of enterprises. Competitiveness of enterprises can only be ensured by maintaining a constant product, service and organisational development and access to new market segments. Tourism sector is a designated beneficiary of the PA measures as there are actions planned for establishment and development of touristic destination management organizations (DMOs): bottom-up territorial organisations comprising local touristic service providers and other related bodies integrating local offers into complex touristic packages. Although boosting tourism is considered as a key measure to enhance competitiveness of rural regions in a sustainable way, by exclusively channelling resources to DMOs, a large number of rural non-touristic SMEs which could also strongly contribute to regional attractiveness can be excluded from funds. Therefore measures or the supported actions to be defined in the prospective calls of the OP should uptake a more cross-sectoral view by targeting a broader scale of SME networks without limitation to the tourism industry and supporting traditional manufacturers, small-scale producers (food, craft) and other local players in supply chains.   Which partners are working on this? Local Government of Nagykanizsa OP North Netherlands ERDF 2014-2020 OP North Netherlands was drawn up based on the RIS3 Strategy of Northern Netherlands. In line with the RIS3 setting the aim to develop the region into a living lab region, the OP supports i.a. innovation actions for SMEs such as cooperation framed in the Quadruple Helix. In Priority 1, with 76% of the total OP budget allocated, increasing the research and innovation intensity of SMEs and improving their uptake of innovation is treated. As the OP has no sectoral preferences, actors related to the regional visitor economy (bringing together stakeholders from tourism and related supply chains) have a range of funding opportunities to strengthen this complex and highly innovative eco-system. Yet as a precondition better access should be facilitated to the OP’s means for rural SMEs who are further from classical innovation hubs and knowledge transfer points to ensure conditions for undisturbed growth, cross-sectoral cooperation and thus competitiveness and sustainability. Cooperation, i.e. maximizing innovation-based productivity represents an enormous opportunity for growth in the visitor economy sector. One way of tackling this issue to be adopted in RuralGrowth is facilitating development of projects with clusters of SMEs, planning and implementing activities based on network utilisation, matching innovative spin-offs in the field of ICT based/eco-innovation and other actors of the visitor economy (knowledge institutes, thematic organizations related to slow tourism etc.).   Which partners are working on this? Province of Drenthe Sustainable growth and jobs 2014-2020 - Structural Funds Programme of Finland [FI], CCI 2014 FI 116M2OP001. European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) For the programme period of 2014-2020, one SF Operational Programme (combining ERDF & ESF contributions) called ‘Sustainable growth and jobs 2014-2020’ has been launched in Finland with separate regional implementation plans. Objective 1 ‘Competitiveness of SMEs - Promoting growth and internationalization of enterprises by developing international and competitive enterprises and supporting innovation to improve competitiveness of the OP will be concerned within this project. Improving the competitiveness of SMEs will receive about 20% of the total OP allocations. The planned investments aim to diversify business structures and increase the number of growing, innovative and internationally expanding companies. In order to reach these objectives, measures will target the start-up of new companies and further developing new business operations with special focus on remote areas. In the implementation plan for Eastern and Northern Finland measures for Objective 1 include supporting stakeholder networks and business clustering, investments for growth and capacity building of SMEs for internationalization. To realize overall competitiveness goals, the geographically fragmented rural SMEs should be encouraged to get engaged in accessing EU funds through the respective OP particularly by focusing on business networking across different administrative regions and sectors involved directly or indirectly in the visitor economy.   Which partners are working on this? Savonlinna Development Services Ltd 2014-2020 ERDF ROP Emilia-Romagna Region In Rural Growth Delta 2000 and its stakeholder group address the Regional OP of Emilia-Romagna. The 3rd thematic priority of the OP targets competitiveness and attractiveness of production system, allocating 60 million euro (25% of the total budget) for this purpose. The priority aims to generate favourable economic environment for creating new businesses and fostering existing ones via promoting entrepreneurship, in particular facilitating the economic exploitation of new ideas and creation of new firms, inter alea through business incubators. Specific objective 3.5 “Promoting the competitiveness of small and medium-sized enterprises” is especially relevant. This SO i.a. supports access to credit (micro-finance), in particular by promoting investment innovation, restructuring and development of new products and services. Local SMEs in the Po Delta area have promising opportunities within the visitor economy connected to sustainable tourism, but they cannot maximize these potentials due to lack of sufficient knowledge on current trends, to cooperation deficit and lack of financial supports available for new investments. These small enterprises remote from innovative urban centres need to be integrated and facilitated in generating projects to become beneficiaries of ERDF support under the OP Emilia-Romagna so as to establish a competitive SME sector ensuring the endogenous, sustainable development of this sensitive rural area with extremely valuable natural assets.   Which partners are working on this? DELTA 2000 Consortium Company with limited liability ERDF Regional Operational Programme of Castilla y León 2014-2020 The targeted policy instrument is the ERDF Regional Operational Programme of Castilla y León 2014-2020, of which the 3rd thematic priority covers SME competitiveness. The Investment Priorities indicate the intention of the region to strengthen the SME segment by promoting entrepreneurship, in particular supporting new ideas and fostering the creation of new businesses; developing and implementing new business models for SMEs, in particular for internationalization; supporting SMEs’ capacity for grow into regional, national and international markets and for improve the innovation processes. The OP covers most aspects of SME development and integration into an innovation based economy. However, the preparation of SMEs to become adaptive to these objectives is still missing from the system. Municipality of Medina del Campo wishes to encourage projects for enhancing local entrepreneurial activities in general. Specific fields that should be facilitated is promoting the growth and consolidation of SMEs, in particular by improving their access to financing, technology and advanced support services; emphasized areas of support are: agrculture and tourism sectors as well as SMEs and freelancers dedicated to retail (SO.3.4.1), as well as promoting innovation, cooperative innovation of SMEs in particular in eco-innovation, social innovation e.g. in agriculture and tourism sectors (SO.3.4.2).   Which partners are working on this? Municipality of Medina del Campo Regional Operative Programme 2014 – 2020 Priority axis 2. Improving competitiveness of small and medium enterprises The Regional Operative Programme 2014-2020 addresses the development needs of regions, amongst others regarding SME competitiveness in all sectors. Based on the ROP regions develop their regional development strategy and have a budget allocated from the overall OP budget frame. Priority 2 of the ROP targets improving the competitiveness of small and medium enterprises. Investment priority: 2.2 ‘Supporting the creation and expansion of advanced capabilities, production and development of services’ aims at maintaining and further developing competitive advantages of SMEs. The main challenge of SMEs’ is quickly responding to the market demands, which is only possible by incorporating technological progress and innovation, specific skills, applying proper marketing, employing trained personnel, and generating vertical integration in the value chains. These components of IP 2.2 contribute to realising the overarching aim of Harghita county, namely to build up an overall integrated economic system relying on the local cultural and environmental assets and building on the integrity and cohesion of all local actors most of all innovative SMEs. As this is a general need of rather similar rural areas within the region, all having excellent potentials in sustainable/slow tourism and operating a growing visitor economy, it can be concluded that more attention is to be paid by the OP to network building and development of community based value chains.   Which partners are working on this?

Project summary CURBING PLASTICS WASTE AND LITTERING IN EU REGIONS The widespread plastic pollution necessitates a strong reaction from EU regions, to address growing environmental and health concerns. PLASTECO, in line with the “European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy”, will support participating territories to take the steps necessary for a transition towards a “new plastics economy”. The focus of the project will be on advances in waste management, eradication of single-use plastics from regional value chains, and spurring growth through eco-innovation. PLASTECO will cover the areas of waste management, public procurement, funding/investments, secondary raw materials, and awareness raising.   OBJECTIVE PLASTECO will support 8 partners from 8 EU countries, through joint policy learning efforts and exchanges of experiences, to benefit from the momentum of the EU plastics strategy and achieve their goals in terms of protecting the environment, increasing resource efficiency, alleviating health effects, and boosting innovation. PLASTECO will enable partners and key stakeholders to:assess the current situation, potential, and barriers in their regions;identify pathways for sustainable growth in plastics value-chains;design and put into effect new policy measures and regulations.  EXPECTED IMPACT The implementation of PLASTECO will:  - Lead to increased capacity of 180 staff of public administrations to effectively support new growth trajectories & energy security - Potential 19 million euros unlocked to support projects on plastic reuse, eco-innovation, alternative technologies - Increased awareness & consensus building among plastic producers and consumers/the public   MAIN OUTPUTS & BENEFICIARIES - 8 action plans to improve the addressed policies, benefiting managing authorities & stakeholders - 4 interregional workshops, 2 study visits, and 2 joint policy planning and strategic review procedures, to promote capacity building among partners and stakeholders - 3 joint thematic studies on territorial needs and good practices €1,610,258.00 from 1 Aug 2019 to 31 Jul 2023 Topic Environment and resource efficiency Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? Local Waste Management Plan of the Municipality of Rethymno RETHYMNO’s Local Waste Management plan provides a consistent framework for waste related activities in the municipality over the period 2014-2020. The plan was developed in accordance with the National Waste Management Plan (49 ΠΥΣ 15‐12‐2015–ΦΕΚ 174/Α/15‐12‐15), and addresses the territorial challenges related to waste management and environmental pollution. It provides a number of targets and milestones for waste reduction & recycling, incl. actions required to meet those targets. The plan seeks to ensure that Rethymno has adequate disposal and waste collection capacity, and to decrease Rethymno’s reliance on landfills for disposing of solid waste. The overriding objective is to stimulate a shift from landfilling towards sustainable management options and resource efficiency, by ensuring that local communities and businesses have opportunities to reduce, reuse and recycle waste.   REASONS FOR IMPROVEMENT 1. The plan was drafted before the EU plastics strategy and the Circular Economy Package and sets low targets for plastic recycling & recovery. It thus needs to be updated to include EU recycling targets for municipal and plastic packaging waste. 2. It focuses exclusively on consumption to reduce waste, improve resource use and increase recycling, lacking measures on production that will help transform the way in which products are designed and packaged, increase plastic recyclability, and most importantly make recycling profitable for local businesses. Which partners are working on this? Municipality of Rethymno Lombardy Regional Operational Programme (ROP) ERDF 2014-2020 Lombardy’s ROP comprises 7 integrated priority axes to promote innovation, competitiveness and sustainable development in the region. Specifically, PA 6 prescribes measures to preserve the environment and promote resource efficiency, while PA 1 aims to strengthen technological research, development and innovation.   The ROP, despite not making a clear reference to plastic waste management and circular economy, supports a number of relevant actions: - Support co-operative innovative activities to develop sustainable technologies and optimise production processes. - Strengthen the demand for innovation in green products through public procurement. - Increase environmental attractiveness and resilience through protection measures.   REASONS FOR IMPROVEMENT 1. There is the need to update the criteria used in GPP so as to encourage the supply of products made from recycled plastic materials or contain plastic components that have a greater durability and are recyclable. 2. Additional measures need to be taken to: a) stimulate the emergence of new companies that provide circular solutions (e.g. reverse logistics for packaging) and b) encourage synergies between businesses for exchanging plastic wastes and residuals in a circular economy model. 3. The ROP does not link the protection of the natural heritage with the need to decrease the amount of plastic waste released into the environment, polluting both aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. Which partners are working on this? Lombardy Region Investments in Growth and Employment Austria 2014-2020 - Operational Programme for the use of the ERDF funds OBJECTIVES & MEASURES The policy instrument has 6 priority axes and aims to foster green economic growth & contribute to achieving the Europe 2020 targets for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. With regards to the issue tackled by PLASTECO, it addresses Thematic Objectives 6 “Preserving and protecting the environment and promoting resource efficiency”, and 4 “Supporting the shift towards a low-carbon economy”, through priority axes 4 and 3 respectively.   REASONS FOR IMPROVEMENT The policy instrument needs to be adapted to the “European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy”, which stresses the fact that in Styria, Austria, and the EU, the potential for recycling plastic waste and corresponding investments remains largely unexploited, due to the low amounts of recycled plastics compared to other materials, and low profitability.   The policy instrument will be improved, through PLASTECO, by proposing measures to: -Support eco-innovations that make recycling plastics easier. - Improve the separate collection of plastic waste. - Modernise Styria’s recycling capacity. - Create viable markets for recycled plastics in Styria.   This way, STYRIA will manage to increase the recycling rates of plastics and reduce their incineration, thereby promoting resource efficiency in its urban centres and fostering the shift to a low-carbon economy. Which partners are working on this? Office of the Regional Government of Styria, Directorate 14 Operational programme "Environment" 2014 – 2020 OBJECTIVES & RELEVANT MEASURES The OP ‘Environment’ 2014-2020 comprises objectives whose aim is to improve waste management capacities, in line with national and EU instruments and priorities for sustainable growth. The OP supports investments along 6 Priority Axes. PA2 – Waste supports measures for improving municipal waste management as outlined in the National Waste Management Plan and the EU Resource Efficiency Roadmap (O3.1, 3.2, 4.1) and in other national and EU policies. The OP’s central purpose is to implement waste prevention measures and environmental protection investments, including waste re-use, recycling and recovery to reduce the amounts of waste going to the landfill.   REASONS FOR IMPROVEMENT The national 2020 recycling target of 50% can be attained through measures targeting plastic waste specifically due to their extensive use in both production and consumption. Plastic waste prevention, re-use and recycling requires the integration of a ‘circular’ economy rationale, as outlined in the “European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy”. The OP could increase its effectiveness in terms of reducing crucial waste mass caused by non-reusable and/or not recycled plastics that account for the bulk of solid environmental pollutants. Advancing cross-sectoral synergies to reduce, and in certain cases even eliminate plastic waste output back into the environment, is predicted to be an effective way of reaching the OP’s target of reducing anthropogenic impact. Which partners are working on this? Stara Zagora Regional Economic Development Agency Future Guidelines for Augsburg / A.2 Improvement of energy and resource efficiency OBJECTIVES & MEASURES ‘Future Guidelines for Augsburg’ (FGA) is a policy instrument that aims to form an orientating basis for the sustainable development of the City of Augsburg. FGA aims to cover all aspects of sustainability (environmental, social, economic, cultural) and, in particular, resource efficiency and waste management and recycling through: a) axis A2: Improve energy and material efficiency, and b) priorities A2.1 Resource-efficient and Resource-saving economies, and A2.2 Strengthening circular economy processes and recycling.   REASONS FOR IMPROVEMENT To tackle the requirements of the “European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy”, and, in general, optimise plastic waste management and recycling in Augsburg, FGA priorities A2.1 and A2.2 need to be updated by including specific initiatives about reducing (micro-)plastics in freshwater environment and optimising circular economy processes to incentivise plastics’ reuse and reduce single–use plastics. With the help of PLASTECO, FGA will not only describe priorities A2.1 and A2.2 as aims, but will be able to move beyond forming the foundations of sustainability in Augsburg, towards the development and integration of a complete strategy, with the participation of all relevant stakeholders, to make Augsburg a model community in the area of plastic waste management. Which partners are working on this? Cluster of Environmental Technologies Bavaria Regional ERDF programme Rhône Alpes 2014-2020 OBJECTIVES & MEASURES CONCERNED The Regional ERDF programme Rhône-Alpes 2014-2020 aims to boost green economic growth and to achieve the Europe 2020 targets for smart, sustainable and inclusive development. About 30% of the budget is allocated to promoting resource efficiency and tackling climate change. It is structured around 6 axes and includes 22 specific objectives. 2 axes and 3 specific objectives include actions relevant to PLASTECO: A1, SP2: Supporting eco-innovation in products and services A1, SP6: Encouraging the transition to ecological businesses & SMEs A2, SP15: Improving waste management processes & reducing waste   REASONS FOR IMPROVEMENT - The ROP needs to integrate provisions from the “European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy” document into policy incentives aiming to boost innovative business solutions across the life cycle of plastic (e.g. in the field of production, cleanup efforts and collection systems, and recycling). - Additional measures required for introducing green public procurement criteria on the use of plastic, reducing significantly the use of plastic materials or promoting plastics with grater durability in public contracts. - Improved capacities required for developing quantitative approaches that monitor plastic consumption and its environmental impact. Which partners are working on this? Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Energy Environment Agency Regional Operational Programme The ROP aims at promoting smart sustainable and inclusive growth in all regions in the country, by addressing major development strategies such as regional competitiveness, environmental protection, the low-carbon economy, and economic/social infrastructure.   PLASTECO will address: PA 5: Improvement of the urban environment and preservation, protection and sustainable valorisation of cultural heritage TO 6: Preserving and protecting the environment and promoting resource efficiency Investment Priority 6c (natural heritage) – Investment Priority 6e (urban environment)   The OP makes explicit mention on the importance to protect the urban environment through sustainable development, prescribing measures to improve Romania’s environmental status (e.g. green spaces and energy consumption in buildings). Nonetheless, it does not address the need to protect the urban environment from the accumulation/fragmentation of plastic waste. The OP does not take into account the threats posed by plastic production to air and soil quality, human health, biodiversity and resource efficiency, and thus lacks measures to curb plastics waste and littering. The policy instrument needs to be adapted to the EU Waste Framework Directive and the Circular Economy Strategy, to include actions that will a) decrease the landfilling rate for solid waste, b) expand the separate collection of plastic waste, c) modernise treatment facilities and increase recycling capacity, and d) promote eco-innovation. Which partners are working on this? Bucharest-Ilfov Regional Development Agency Operational Programme ''Growth and Employment'' OBJECTIVES & MEASURES Operational programme “Growth and Employment” (OPGE) aims to foster the competitiveness of Latvian economy by prioritising (among others) the sustainable use of natural and cultural resources, and balanced and sustainable territorial development. In this context, PLASTECO will develop and propose best policies & practices for plastic waste management & recycling congruent with OPGE priority axis 2.5. ‘Protection of environment and effective use of resources’, and Specific Objective 5.2.1: to increase re-using, recycling and regeneration of various sorts of waste.   REASONS FOR IMPROVEMENT Addressing the requirements of the “European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy”, needs to be integrated to OPGE actions so as to strengthen the fulfilment in Latvia of the EU environmental acquis in the area of waste (Directive 2008/98/EC, Directive 1999/31/EC, Directive 94/62/EC, Directive 2012/19/EC, 2000/53/EC), particularly with respect to plastic waste recycling. Integrating the provisions of the European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy through PLASTECO, will ensure that OPGE will be improved through concrete measures aimed at a) reducing the amount of waste from plastic packaging exported due to inefficient recycling, b) fostering the recycling or regeneration of household plastic waste, and c) attracting investments in the area of plastic waste management.

Project summary   Seven partners around Europe, work together for 5 years to strengthen the support to Small and Medium-sized companies in their attempt to go global. Compete In looks to improve the effectiveness of regions and cities as facilitators of internationalisation processes. Cities and regions promote international relations and act as governance actors and enablers for a range of local stakeholders who cooperate to make regions as better able to pursue internationalisation.   A new approach    The project deploys a new methodology: approaching internationalisation not by addressing uniquely SMEs, but by addressing the regional systems’ of distinctive territorial competences, always bearing in mind that the final objective is to support SMEs going global.   The interregional learning The interregional learning process will be developed through study visits, transfer workshops, meetings and interregional events during the entire length of the project. Partners will exchange their local best practices on internationalisation, focusing on three main areas: the attraction of investments, the penetration of new markets and territories and the creation of international partnerships. €1,416,574.00 from 1 Apr 2016 to 31 Mar 2021 Topic SME competitiveness Main results The expected outcomes of Compete In project are  improvements of internationalisation policies through the development of local action plans and the creation of local cooperation processes making all relevant stakeholders (SMEs, universities/research centres, trade associations, Chambers of Commerce, local/regional governments) acting as part of a regional system to be internationalised. Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? DUP – Documento Unico di Programmazione del Comune di Reggio Emilia 2015-2019 (Single planning document of the Municipality of Reggio Emilia) Strategic priority 1 - Economic development: the international city of innovation and creativity Objective 3: promotion and internationalisation DUP Strategic Priority 1 tackles the transition, for Reggio Emilia, from an industrial economy to a knowledge economy, this by leveraging on local distinctive competences (Education, Mechatronics, Agrifood, Energy & Services) in line with the Regional S3 and by fostering internationalisation of the local system through the international relations built by the city with several countries, both EU and outside EU, for the benefit of SMEs. Reasons for improvement are: 1. ERDF OP measures targeting internationalisation struggle to have complete effectiveness at local level, since mismatches between regional and local programming exist: dialogue and integration between these 2 levels must be improved, to guarantee harmonisation of internationalisation policies and a full integration of ERDF priorities in local planning. 2. Co-existence of several stakeholders with different levels of internationalisation (SMEs, universities, R&I centres) and with different roles in support of internationalisation (Local Authority, Chamber of Commerce, Trade associations): governance of these organisations has to be improved to avoid duplication, define and share a common vision for economic development and internationalisation of the regional system The new approach must be to build and promote cooperation processes (replacing standard competitive processes) that put together different local and international actors in a “knowledge creation chain”, consisting in partnerships and collaborations.  Which partners are working on this? Municipality of Reggio Emilia Valencia ERDF Operational Programme 2014-2020. Axis 3:Enhancing the competitiveness of SMEs, the agricultural sector and the fisheries and aquaculture. Investment priority 3d: Supporting the capacity of SMEs to grow in regional, national & international markets and to engage in innovation processes Valencia ERDF OP, Axis 3 is aimed at improving innovation & internationalization of SMEs, in line also with the region’s general promotion strategy. The ERDF OP is intended to respond to the weakness local SMEs have demonstrated in finding new solutions to overcome the weak Spanish domestic market, and to stimulate the growth of technology oriented SMEs. Up to date, the regional programme intervenes via a set of priority actions such as: - Selection of service providers in foreign markets. • New services and assistance for internationalization beginners • Foster companies to establish abroad • Financing and insurance • Logistics • Foreign investment attraction Nevertheless, this approach still presents some aspects that need improvement: • Communication with local enterprises: not efficient, too many stakeholders involved, coordination is required • Exporting companies’ needs are constantly changing. Services and programmes must adapt to the new exporting companies’ profiles • General remark: innovation is strictly connected with internationalisation, thus need to improve internationalisation approaches to foster SME innovation • Cooperation among SMEs is not well developed and has to be enhanced • New emerging sectors, such as technology oriented sectors, require a specific and different approach. Knowledge has to be acquired on how to support advanced services and creative industries • Clusters are still too weak and need improvement, especially in IT & health sectors Which partners are working on this? Valencia Entrepreneurship and Competitiveness Institute ERDF ROP of Silesia Voivodeship – Priority Axis 3: “Improving condition for the development of SMEs” 1. Thematic call 3.1.3 “Increasing professional services provided by business support organization (BSO)“ 2. Thematic call 3.2 “Innovativeness of SMEs” In the previous programming period the internationalization of SMEs was laid down in the ERDF OP – TO 6.1, namely in the "Passport to Export" Project, managed by national level (PARP – Polish Agency of Economy Development). These measures were focused on projects aimed at increasing the share of exports in total sales, intensifying relations with foreign partners and increase brand recognition and companies on foreign markets. Now, based on above mentioned experience, the regional authorities were forced to carry out such activities by themselves. Silesian Voivodship authority intends to increase the internationalization capacity of regional SMEs by services provided by regional BSO, starting from the acknowledgement that SMEs participation at trade missions is useless without proper support and market information. Additionally, the regional authority is willing to support regional SMEs which respond to RIS smart technologies requirements. This implies that relevant organizations within Silesian Voivodship have to build competences at regional level, to better address internationalization issues and better assist SMEs. Weaknesses exist in the regional system that must be tackled by learning from more experienced regions on this subject. Which partners are working on this? Upper Silesian Agency for Entrepreneurship and Development Ltd. Wielkopolska’s ERDF Regional Operational Programme 2014-2020, Priority axis 1: Innovative and competitive economy; Objective 1.4: Internationalization of regional economy. The development policy of Wielkopolska Region in field of economic growth is focused on establishing an innovative and competitive economy by i.e. supporting local enterprises in expansion on international markets and building cooperation with foreign partners. Increasing the value of international trade exchange of SMEs will accelerate their development and improve competitiveness on global market. Therefore the internationalization level has a direct impacton improvement of region’s competitiveness and investment attractiveness. According to regional analyses the main barriers for SMEs from Wielkopolska to expand on foreign markets is lack of relevant information and insufficient knowledge in the field of strategic international management. The support should be provided by regional authorities to companies on different stages of internationalization - from the concept phase through implementation of the idea up to improvement of existing cooperation, by leveraging on regional systems as a whole. Therefore it is necessary to develop new tools adjusted to actual needs of enterprises by using potential and experience of the entire regional system. By engaging various local partners (trade associations, clusters, universities) and using other regions’ knowledge Wielkopolska will be able to generate the added value in terms of improving the competitiveness of its SMEs. The regional approach will also allow small enterprises to engage into international markets which until now where beyond their reach. Which partners are working on this? WIELKOPOLSKA REGION with the seat of the MARSHAL OFFICE OF THE WIELKOPOLSKA REGION IN POZNAN” Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership’s European Structural and Investment Fund Strategy 2014-2020 “CHALLENGE: to promote more exports across the City Region” (LCREP, 2015, page 48). The policy instrument seeks to improve awareness of, involvement in and more value-added being derived by SMEs from international markets: it focuses on developing an improved way of SME learning to entry new markets. This will directly improve ESIF support activity to improve SMEs involvement in 3rd markets. The innovative aspect is overcoming individual SME’s lack of awareness and general inertia on internationalisation by focusing on collective learning and exchange between SMEs within and between regions. Traditional barriers of individual adoption of new behaviour will be broken down by emphasising collaborative learning networks so as to reduce risk and transaction costs and to enhance SME’s abilities to enter new markets. Firms that trade internationally are more benchmarked against global competition and generally invest & benefit more from innovation. Wakefield’s SMEs are more inward facing and trading regionally rather than internationally, thus their competitiveness has a much narrower and regionally determined basis. The aim is to improve the sustainable competitive advantage of SMEs vis-à-vis other more internationally active businesses by reducing economic and transaction costs (information gathering, risk assessment & management, partner search..) to enter new markets. Wakefield will act as an honest broker and intermediary to reduce various barriers to entry and to enhance the know-how capabilities of the business to make a calculated entry into new markets. Which partners are working on this? Leeds Beckett University - partner from 28 November 2017 Investment for Growth and Jobs programme, NUTS 2: North Central Sweden (C(2014)9938, decision by the European Commission, 15th of December 2014) Thematic goal 3: Strengthen the competitiveness of small- and medium sized companies. Investment priority 3d: Supporting small- and medium sized companies to invest in growth in regional, national and international markets and engage in innovation processes.  The business structure in North Central Sweden is one-sided and traditional. There is a need for a more diversified business structure to decrease vulnerability, enlarge markets and widening of the labour market. Identified strengths are strong (large) export companies with high-end competence, a strong tourism sector and closeness to growth regions like Stockholm, Göteborg and Oslo. Important learnings from the last programming period 2007-2013 is that the actions should build on the needs & demand of the companies. Particular focus on new, fast growing companies, with active support of business development, internationalisation, commercialization, innovation capacity and access to finance. Sustainable development should be seen as a step to create growth in SMEs, as an example; take advantage of foreign born as a resource for export and internationalisation of products & services. In order to increase the SME internationalization and get a more efficient support system, adapted to the economy of tomorrow, where the joint resources deliver the most result, there is a need to: - create a common vision and objectives for the support to SME internationalization among local/regional stakeholders - develop a regional internationalization action plan for SMEs, involving all relevant stakeholders and making cities/regions acting as facilitator of the internationalisation of regional systems. Gävle, with the Region of Gävleborg, will coordinate this process.  Which partners are working on this? Municipality of Gävle ERDF Regional Operational Plan 2014-2020, Axis 3 Competitiveness and attractiveness of the productive system Investment Priority 3b Development and realization of news attractiveness models devoted to the SME, regarding in particular internalization Specific Objective 3.4 Increase of the internalization level of the productive systems Action 3.4.1 Projects for promoting export devoted to enterprises and their association identified at territorial or sectorial level. Emilia-Romagna Regional OP – Axis 3 is characterized by multi-year interventions regarding internalization process towards new markets based on a production chain logic, supporting sectorial, vertical or horizontal associations, also through the export consortia and guiding the business export activity, highlighting entrepreneurial associations and innovation centers’ involvement. The main strategy underpinning this Axis is to support recover and growth via innovation, internationalisation and business creation, by applying RIS3 priorities with a cross-sector approach to the regional productive system. In particular business check-up, buyers and importers search, B2B meeting and visits, business, industrial and productive cooperation agreements will be financed. What needs to be improved is the governance, as far as the “Triangle of knowledge” is concerned: research institutions, public authorities, SMEs. These actors have different roles and have different levels of internationalisation: alone they struggle to success, whereas, if they cooperate and act as a system, they can maximise the result. Regional government thus intend to improve the governance of the programme and of stakeholders linked to internationalisation of SMEs, by further cooperating with the local sector to allow for a more effective application of ERDF instruments within the territories.  Which partners are working on this?

Project summary Many European urban areas face a series of environmental challenges linked to mobility congestion and air pollution. Based on experience, sustainable urban mobility planning cannot be achieved without the commitment of key stakeholders and travellers and given this need, e-smartec proposes accompanying each step of mobility planning with the deployment of targeted marketing techniques for linking bottom-up and top-down decision making. The e-smartec project is designed to strengthen the urban dimension of regional and local mobility policymaking, contributing to the implementation of the EU Transport White Paper, Urban Agenda and EU 2020 with a view to transit to a low carbon economy. e-smartec aims at developing Action Plans to start and implement effective mobility interventions, as the basis for a competitive, resource-efficient and low carbon oriented European transport system. The 9 e-smartec partners, from 7 EU countries representing the 6 e-smartec test-bed areas, join their forces in an ultimate goal to provide tailored guidelines on citizens and stakeholders' engagement marketing techniques for innovative decision-making and traditional procedures. €1,621,975.00 from 1 Aug 2019 to 31 Jan 2023 Topic Low-carbon economy Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? ERDF 2014-2020, Operational Programme of the Region of Central Macedonia 2014-2020, Priority Axis 4: Supporting the move towards a low carbon economy in all sectors, Investment Priority 4e: Promotion of low carbon strategies especially in urban areas, including promotion of sustainable urban mobility and adaptation mitigation measures and Priority Axis 6: Preserving and protecting the environment and promoting the efficiency of the use of natural resources, Investment Priority 6e: Rehabilitation and revitalization of urban areas and improvement of the urban environment, including updated of degraded envrionmental areas (including areas to be reconstructed) and measures for air pollution and noise reduction. One of the main priorities of the Regional Operational Programme (ROP) of the Region of Central Macedonia (RCM) is the promotion of low carbon strategies throught among others with the reduction of fossil fuel usage in the transport sector (possible use of renewable energy sources) and innovative actions for emissions reduction in the Region. The actions indicated in the ROP refer to the development or enrichment of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) and acceptable interventions; the introduction of Intelligent Transport Systems (e.g. Traffic Management Center), the extension of the sea public transport in Thermaikos Gulf, the introduction of cycling & walking paths, the pedestrianization of specific streets and the implementation of awareness-raising campaigns for the promotion of sustainable urban mobility. What is crucial for the development of acceptable however mobility plans is citizens' and users' (in general, involving tourists and other key stakeholders) engagement in both in decision making and also in the daily operation of the cities (for which behaviour change is a prerequisite) which are e-smartec main goals. This weakness of the instrument (not clear definition of strategies and engagement techniques) will be looked at in-depth in e-smartec project and with the policy recommendations and the APs to be developed, it will undoubtedly add value in the policy instrument. Which partners are working on this? Centre for Research and Technology Hellas Regional Development Fund of Central Macedonia on behalf of the Region of Central Macedonia European Structural and Investment funds 2014 to 2020 Coventry and Warwickshire Strategy For the 2014 to 2020 programming period Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEP) in England are responsible for designing and delivering strategies on how best to use this funding. Each Local Enterprise Partnership area receives a notional allocation from the funds for seven years to deliver its European Structural and Investment (ESI) Funds strategy which must be spent in line with a set of overarching priorities set out in the EU regulations. The Coventry and Warwickshire area has a notional allocation of 135.5 Euro. LEP set out strategic-level activities to deliver its objectives with the European SFs and specify the outcomes they are seeking to achieve and the rationale for the selection of activities for ESI Funds investment. THEME 4: SUPPORTING THE SHIFT TOWARDS A LOW CARBON ECONOMY IN ALL SECTORSStrategic Activities: Which partners are working on this? Coventry University Enterprises Ltd ERDF Regional Operational Programme 2014-2020 - Lazio ROP of Lazio Region 5 key priorities are: 1.Research and Innovation (180M€) 2.Digital Lazio (154,2M€) 3.Competiveness (276,5M€) 4.Sustainable energy & mobility (176M€) 5.Prevention of hydrogeological risk (90M€) “Axis 4 - Sustainable energy and mobility of Lazio Region” foresees several actions to be realized under the investment priority “e” assigned to the promotion of sustainable urban mobility  lazioeuropa.it/files/150306/svi_co_porfesr_2014_20_12_02_2015.pdf), and in particular: *Action 4.6.1 development of infrastructures and intermodal nodes aimed at increasing collective mobility and to the ecocompatible delivery of goods (and relative transportation systems) *Action 4.6.2 Interventions on sustainable urban mobility by promoting low-environmental-impact transport systems, as well as completing, setting-up and renewing fleets of PuT *Action 4.6.3 Intelligent Transport Systems In daily cities operation, an awareness gap from citizens’ side with regards to the benefits from adopting sustainable behaviours is noted. What e-smMARTEC will offer to improve the POR Axis 4 in Lazio Region is the knowhow to develop strategies for a more effective citizens’ involvement in the process of social innovation through their active participation in the decision making procedures so to ultimately achieve a stable behavioural change driven by policies supporting sustainable mobility and sustainable living areas. Which partners are working on this? Link Campus University Rome Mobility Agency Integrated regional operational programme 2014 - 2020 The main objective of the Operational Programme is to contribute to the promotion of life quality and to ensure sustainable provision of public services across the country. Total allocation of IROP for EU resources is 1 754 490 415 EUR. A significant proportion of funding – 24.00% of the total financial allocation was dedicated to TO7 - Promoting sustainable transport and removing bottlenecks in key network infrastructures. Even though the transport allocation is connected with TO7, it has a lot to do with TO4 Priority axis No. 1: Safe and environmentally-friendly transport in regions, in particular Specific objective No. 1.1, Activity A) Development of local/regional sustainable mobility plans, as the precondition for all the following proposed interventions in the transport system. Specific IROP objective no. 1.2.1 is focused on the increasing the attractiveness and competitiveness of public transport. The aim is to promote a sustainable, easily accessible and cost-effective public transport network, the connections of which are linked to transport systems within the urban area. Bratislava Region envisages to use 86,67 mil. EUR out of the total IROP national budget for this priority axis. Active citizens’ participation in mobility planning is a prerequisite for the implementation of measures acceptable by the public and thus sustainable. Which partners are working on this? University of Žilina Operational Programme South Netherlands 2014-2020 (OPZuid) OPZuid covers the provinces Brabant, Limburg,Zeeland. Priorities are 1)promote adoption of innovative low-carbon technologies in the region through demonstrations&pilot projects and to enable larger-scale roll-outs 2) Increase (open) innovation cooperation,crossover innovation,innovation intensity in SMEs &improve uptake of innovation, in particular in clusters identified in RIS3. Cities are recognised as crucial partners for implementation of the OP, both directly and via triple helix. An area where the OP could improve is by forging the link and promote further contribution of sustainable mobility projects towards the objectives of the OP. There is no doubt smart rollout of certain sustainable mobility actions would increase the adoption of innovative low-carbon technologies, envisaged under the first priority. In the second priority area, the OP identifies Smart Mobility as promising area to promote such innovation, whereas logistics is a focus cluster of the RIS3&the OP. Developing pilot projects and securing smart rollout has proven to be challenging in our region. Specific challenges identified in our region relate to•Experience in promoting public private cooperation&crossovers between sectors to initiate specific pilot projects and living labs(co-design of smart e-systems; cross chain collaboration in logistics)•Attitude and knowledge of (potential) users, specific user groups towards new technologies, mobility services, etc.•Promotion of zero emission urban logistics Which partners are working on this? Municipality of Venlo Operational Programme ERDF 2014 - 2020, State of Hessen, Axis 4, Investment priority 4e The selected policy instrument supports local and regional strategies for sustainable urban devel-opment in order to create more liveable and environmentally sound conditions –especially in urban areas. One focus lays on mobility concepts and their implementation, incorporating aspects and objectives of different sectors such as city and regional planning, climate protection, clean air and noise reduction to develop scaling effects. The development of mobility systems optimised for lower emissions (CO2 reduction),is being funded on concept level. According to the prerequisite of an integrated character of those concepts they are expected to follow the European SUMP ap-proach. State of Hessen now aims to extensively promote the introduction of sustainable mobility planning processes on local and regional level and therefore founded the Centre of Competence for Sustainable Urban Mobility (CC-SUM). In general, Germany has a long lasting but no normative mobility planning tradition. However, many municipalities are reluctant to develop and implement SUMP concepts. Experiences show that enhanced and structured communication is key to better stakeholders in politics, administration and citizenry. The policy instrument shall therefore be up-dated by incorporating actions plans for better communication, qualification and implementation of sustainable urban mobility to result in more concepts being implemented and measures being real-ised using support by respective policy instrument.
