Any costs associated with this control are indicated so they can be planned for in any project budget. The system Finland has opted for a decentralised first level control system. Before the first expenditure can be reported, the project partners will have to propose an independent internal or external controller to the following body: Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment Regional Department P.O. Box 32, FI-00023 Government, Finland www.tem.fi/eay/valvonta Contact person: Ms Tuula Manelius Phone : +358 10 60 64909 Fax : + 358 10 60 47027 E-mail : [email protected] This body will authorise the controller proposed by the project partner after having checked that the controller is sufficiently independent from project activities and finances and qualified to carry out the control of an INTERREG Europe project. Further guidance on the first level control system in Finland and the application form for the appoitment of the first level controller can be found on the following internet address (in English, Finnish and Swedish): www.rakennerahastot.fi/web/eay/ensimmaisen-tason-valvonta-flc. The costs The costs resulting from the control can be reported as eligible costs in compliance with the relevant EU-regulations and programme rules. On-the-spot checks The first level controllers will carry out on-the-spot-checks at least once during the project lifetime.

Project summary   Destination strategies for the competitiveness of the local SMEs The aim of Destination SMEs is to assist European territories in designing effective destination management strategies in order to provide tourist SMEs with a favourable environment for growth and improve their competitiveness.The project brings together 7 partners from 7 European countries (France, Italy, Malta, Ireland, Finland, Latvia, Slovenia) consisting of a mix of public authorities at national, regional and local level and agencies having a delegation of competences from their public authority. Creating effective tourist destinations Tourist SMEs need favourable conditions to succeed and to increase their competitiveness.  Only a well-managed "Destination" can offer such conditions.. how?Strengthening the identity of the territory Establishing a territorial tourist development strategy Ensuring a cohesion between the various tourist offers in the area Allowing cooperation among stake holders & an effective governance systemThe project: exchange of experiences and knowledge transfer Thanks to the interregional exchange, the analysis of policies and best practices from different countries and the involvement of relevant stakeholders within each area, the partners will have the opportunity to improve their territorial policies or to develop new destination management projects (action plans), giving an effective support to SMEs of the tourist sector. €1,483,536.00 from 1 Apr 2016 to 30 Jun 2021 Topic SME competitiveness Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? Auvergne ERDF ESF regional operational programme 2014-2020; Axis 3 SMEs competitiveness; Investment priority 3d Support to the capacity of SMEs to participate to processes of innovation and growth; Specific Objective: Strengthen the finance opportunities to cover all development steps of SMEs This measure aims at supporting the creation, the development, the innovation and the improvement of the productivity of tourist SMEs. Only private investment projects (like tourist accommodation) are eligible to these subsidies. It is expected that supported SMEs will contribute to the economy of their territory, directly and indirectly. During the previous programming period, the Tourism Department of the Auvergne regional Council observed that beneficiaries of ERDF located on a territory where a destination management strategy had been developed, were more successful than others to attract customers. Indeed tourist SMEs are part of a destination, an area with activities, accommodation, transportation systems etc. Destinations that are well managed are more likely to generate `wise growth' in their visitor economy. This is why the Tourism Department introduced an inflexion in this new Operational Programme to give a preference to projects located on a territory where a destination management body or strategy exists. But the measure does not give any support to the implementation of such destination management strategies, which means that many territories in the region, and consequently many SMEs, don't benefit from the favourable environment that an "organized destination" can provide. This is the point that needs to be improved in the OP, which can be done twice a year (Application Doc.) or in 2018 (mid-term review of the OP). Which partners are working on this? Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Tourism ‘until 31/12/2016 Regional Tourist Development Board of Auvergne’ Investment program for the growth and the occupation 2014/20, Priority axis 3, Investment priority 3.b), Action 3.3.2 The priority axis 3 is dedicated to the competitiveness promotion of SMEs. The main objective of the axis is the strengthening, modernisation and diversification of the productive systems. The intended result of the measure is to increase tourist flows in relation to the population (target value: from 23,2 days of 2013 to 24,5 days in 2023). The selected Investment priority is 3.b, which aims at developing and realizing new models of activities for SMEs, in particular as far as internationalization is concerned. Action 3.3.2 is focused on the support to the development of products and services complementary to the enhancement of identified cultural and natural attractiveness factors of the territory, even by means of the integration of businesses belonging to the cultural, tourist, sports, creative and media sectors and to the traditional and typical products supply chain. The foreseen interventions are oriented to the qualification of the accommodation and reception services and to the support to the SMEs operating in the cultural and tourist fields.   In order to increase the effectiveness of the policy which was recently approved, P2 wants to benefit from new project ideas abroad to inspire local businesses to present similar innovative projects in their territory, increasing the use of available ERDF funds by local entrepreneurs.

Grand Paradis Foundation EcoGozo – the local Sustainable Development Strategy for the island of Gozo This policy instrument aims to translate the national Sustainable Development policy into a sustainability action plan for the island of Gozo, resulting in a stronger economy, a sounder environment and an improvement of the island’s social and cultural milieu. Like all sustainability action plans, this policy is in constant need of revision and improvement. The Rural Tourism aspect – identified in the National Tourism Policy as the strategic choice for Gozo - is seen as crucial in this regard. In fact, the National Tourism Policy states that: “Gozo has established itself strongly as a quality destination attracting activity and special interest holidays. Gozo is also strong in quality relaxation travel, besides also having pioneered aspects such as rural-tourism experiences. These are attributes which strongly differentiate Gozo from mainland Malta and need to be further developed as part of the Island’s strategy to achieve more sustainable tourism flows.” The following actions are listed as Policy actions with respect to Gozo: • Development of a specific tourism strategy for Gozo within the framework of the national tourism policy • Support Gozitan traditional crafts and promote the artisans who work in these sectors • Initiatives supporting the rural characteristics of Gozo • Incentives supporting Green Tourism All these points could be dealt with by developing a transversal Destination Management strategy in order to answer all the needs identified in the policy document Which partners are working on this? Ministry for Gozo Southern & Eastern Regional Operational Programme, Priority Axis 3: SME Support, promotion and capability development. The Operational Programme sets out a strategy, including a set of investment priorities to meet the strategic objectives set for the Regional OP. The specific objective 3a, that corresponds with investment priority 3a, is ‘To increase employment levels in micro-enterprises in the Southern and Eastern Region by supporting business start-ups, business expansion and higher innovation levels in micro-enterprises’. The investment priority supports start-ups and growing businesses through the provision of business information, advisory services, capability building, mentoring and financial supports. Micro-enterprise supports are administered by Local Enterprise Offices in each local authority area. The OP states that supports will be provided for SMEs specifically targeted at micro-enterprises in the manufacturing and traded services sectors. The potential for growth in the tourism sector should be acknowledged with specific reference to the extension of supports to tourist SMEs. Also, there is a need to include supports for the establishment of destination management body(s)/ cluster for tourism related SMEs, which could develop a destination management strategy, as there is no such provision in the current OP. Unless there is specific policy support to encourage territories to organise themselves as a tourist destination, tourist SMEs are unlikely to succeed. The establishment of such a body/ cluster would increase the efficiency and effectiveness of current ERDF supports. Which partners are working on this? Cork County Council Regional Development Programme POKAT 2017 and its “sub-programme” Tourism Operational Programme 2014-2020 The Tourism Operational Programme of North Karelia 2014-2020 aims at improving competitiveness of tourism destinations, increasing international tourism, developing tourism events, nature- and culture-based tourism product development. In North Karelia, tourism sector is scattered and there is a lack of tourism SMEs agglomerations. Resources allocated to tourism development should be targeted at fewer projects, objectives and actors based on the tourism entrepreneurs needs. Better coordination and enhancing SMEs agglomerations are main foci.The Tourism Operational Programme of North Karelia 2014-2020 is a sub-programme of the Regional Strategic Programme of North Karelia for 2014-2017 that outlines regional development targets based on the region’s potential, needs, culture and special characteristics. Tourism is one of the selected development targets. Which partners are working on this? Regional Council of North Karelia National Operational Programme “Growth and Employment” investment priority No. 3.2.: "Supporting the capacity of SMEs to engage in regional, national and international markets, and innovation processes." Specific Objective No. 3.2.1.: to promote the competitiveness and exporting capacity of SMEs. This policy aims at promoting international awareness of Latvian products and services, thus increasing the competitiveness of enterprises in external markets and hence, the volumes of export of goods and services of SME’s. It does not cover destination management as one of the means for increasing competitiveness of SMEs.The cooperation approach for implementing destinations and promoting SMEs development and cooperation is missing. It is important that national level policy instrument includes the needs of Vidzeme region tourist SMEs. Latvian tourism development policy guidelines aims at accentuating the creation of regional tourism clusters. Educating tourism SMEs on the benefits of developing their business and joining clusters is encouraged in the Tourism development policy guidelines. Destination SMEs will help to draw the attention to destination management issues. Vidzeme region set up a tourism cluster in the Gauja national park and sustainable tourism is included as one of the region’s S3 areas. In order to develop the cluster and implement region’s S3, it is important to improve the coverage of destination management in the National Operational Programme. Since the last planning period, there have been discussions of the disadvantages of dispersed investments and on the advantages of stakeholder cooperation in a destination. The detailed conditions of implementing the policy instrument are still in progress, so it would be advisable to include clustering in it. Which partners are working on this?

Project summary Major tourism attractions are emerging as internationally acclaimed hubs of visits and services, leading to oversight of other cultural sites and to non-sustainability of most-visited destinations. At the same time tourists are upgrading authentic cultural heritage, offering specific experience rooted in local history and the preserved cultural legacy of communities, adding unique flavors and excitement to their adventure.   Small and medium sized towns with rich but undervalued cultural heritage possess the potential to offer new, unique and authentic experiences, but suffer from either the dominance of major attractions in their vicinity, or from their relatively remote locations. Positioning them as authentic destinations can simultaneously sustain local cultural heritage and create better prospects for locals. The attraction of tourists to less recognized places can create a more even distribution of tourism and more cohesive regional economies.   Local Cultural Flavors’ objective is to improve policies supporting places unable to fully exploit their cultural legacies due to less-advantaged locations. The project will help partners to meet the challenge of identifying the most effective ways to support unique local sites with an innovative analysis toolkit, extensive knowledge sharing and with assisted interaction with local public and private stakeholders. This way the specific local and regional potentials and bottlenecks can be properly explored and used to elaborate the right policy frameworks elevating and positioning new authentic destinations.   As a result of the cooperation of the international partnership, 8 Action Plans will be produced as main outcomes, targeting various policy instruments (ERDF Operational Programmes, development and marketing strategies) supporting the addressed locations in their pursuit to become more integrated and integral players in regional tourism, based on their recognized and properly used authentic cultural assets. €1,777,873.00 from 1 Aug 2019 to 31 Jul 2022 Topic Environment and resource efficiency Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? "Creative City – Sustainable Region" National Programme on the Pilot Regional Development Approach in the West-Pannon Region (KRAFT Programme) The KRAFT Programme is one of 3 pilot regional development policies of the HU government, and aims the sustainable development of small and medium sized border towns. In contrast to conventional regional and city development practices (Green Cities Index, Sustainable Cities Index, Creative Cities Index, etc.), the approach of the KRAFT Programme integrates so-called “soft” factors (culture, identity, heritage) and their efficient management with “hard Factors” such as infrastructure, energy, communication networks and economic sustainability. Another novelty of KRAFT is to identify and utilize synergies of interdependencies among rural and city development factors), thus properly revealing the full range of conditions required for the implementation of new, complex regional development strategies of cities and their rural environment.   iASK is identified by the government as responsible for the preparation of the KRAFT Programme and its adaptation to other border regions in HU. In the course of LCF, iASK aims to improve the KRAFT Programme to specifically build on cultural heritage based urban development, often the most promising development asset of small/medium cities, and an intervention area providing economic, job creation, business/tourism attractiveness, workforce/inhabitant retention benefits all at the same time. Which partners are working on this? Institute of Advanced Studies Regional Operational Programme 2014-2020, Priority Axis 5. Improving the urban environment and conservation, protection and sustainable use of cultural heritage Regional Operative Programme 2014-2020 of Romania aims to ensure the continuation of strategic regional development. It promotes smart sustainable and inclusive growth in all RO regions, making them more attractive places to live and to work in. The programme addresses the major development challenges for RO: regional competitiveness, sustainable urban development, low-carbon economy, and economic and social infrastructure at regional and local level.   The programme focuses on 8 Priority Axes, out of which LCF targets PA 5: “Improving the urban environment and conservation, protection and sustainable use of cultural heritage”.   By focusing regional level thematic calls, and modifying the selection process, the targeted PI can be better positioned to tackle the following challenges of Harghita County: - Boosting sustainability through sharper focus on the exploitation of local resource based authentic tourism potential in Harghita and the introduction of modernized operational and sales schemes. - More balanced regional tourism cooperation disseminating tourism loads of major hubs and empowering smaller cultural cities.   Which partners are working on this? Harghita County Council Citymarketing Policy Document of ‘s-Hertogenbosch The targeted PI evaluates the rich cultural heritage of the city, the compact, easily accessible historic center, abundant in arts and gastronomy, and high standards in hospitality, and aims to combine it with the vibrant, modern and innovative social and economic environment of s’Hertogenbosch. It is approved by the city council and concentrates on the following objectives: - O1 Increase attractiveness for residents by strengthening uniqueness and generating proudness and affiliation - O2 Combine efforts of all departments and actors to increase visitor economy (including no. of tourists, visits, spending and length of stay) - O3 Attract private investment and companies to settle in MHB and improve the business network in RIS3 sectors (agrifood, construction, logistics and data science/ICT); provide an attractive living environment for educated (international) employees - O4 Connect students and young professions to the city, and build on their creativity, knowledge and entrepreneurship   Cultural heritage is considered a key strength, requiring an integrated approach of currently separated policies of heritage and tourism/citymarketing. MHB wishes to improve Objective 2, by developing a workplan to improve the existing structure of actors in citymarketing and cultural heritage, initiate new innovative market and product development (adding authentic, intangible elements to the visitor experience), and establishing effective destination management.   Which partners are working on this? Municipality of ‘s-Hertogenbosch Waterford City and County Council - Tourism Statement of Strategy and Work Plan 2017–2022 Waterford belongs to Ireland’s ‘Ancient East’ historic region with a unique attraction base, predestining it to become one of Ireland’s leading tourism destinations outside Dublin, but currently less competitive as compared to the Dublin-Cork-Galway triangle. Tourism Statement of Strategy 2017–2022 aims to: - Enhance reputation and profile - Achieve maximum potential as a primary destination in the Ancient East, with united and cohesive tourism sector - Increase number of visits, duration and spending - Reduce seasonality - Maintain, conserve and restore heritage to promote authentic tourism - Active fund raising and support   Visitors choose to holiday in Waterford because of the quality and accessibility of cultural heritage and natural environment. Apart from lush countryside and a stunning coastline, the historic story of Waterford includes a UNESCO designated Geopark; the Garden Trail of great houses, landscape demesnes and gardens; and a wonderful collection of historic towns and villages that are a testament to historic legacy for visitors and communities alike.   The success of the policy depends on the selection and implementation of projects properly positioned to most effectively address the aims, and building on the inherent and authentic heritage portfolio of the region. WCCC wants to improve its project assessment, selection and initiation capabilities and its access to funding, in order to foster development of its small historic cities trough authentic tourism. Which partners are working on this? Waterford City and County Council Sustainable growth and jobs 2014-2020 programme The targeted PI has five priority axes and 13 specific objectives. As this is FI's sole Structural Funds programme for the current programming period, no funding is provided for activities outside these priorities.   LCF addresses 2 PAs dealing with various sectoral aspects of the transversal topic of tourism (not addressed directly by objectives): - PA1 Improving SME competitiveness: to diversify business structures and increase the number of growing, innovative and internationally expanding companies, start-ups and new operations. PA1 is relevant for LCF as it could potentially improve the funding position of authentic tourism products and services, enabling more effective preservation and promotion of the cultural heritage of the region. - PA2 Producing and using latest information and knowledge: to strengthen selected smart specialization fields of companies, and application of research & Innovation results in commercial products. LCF could focus the intervention on digitalization and VR applications strengthening the authentic tourism service chain.   FI signed the EC Treaty on EU cultural routes in 2018, and is planning to boost the tourism sector with new cultural heritage products. As South Savo is the heart of the FI lake district, rich in natural and cultural heritage, the envisaged cultural heritage related improvements are in line with the interests of the South Savo Regional Council, the managing authority of the targeted PI.   Which partners are working on this? Savonlinna Development Services Ltd. ERDF Regional Operative Programme 2014-2020, Axis 3 Competivity of Productive Systems Tourism, the main driver of cultural heritage preservation and promotion, is a transversal topic in Veneto Region, shared between 3 sources (ERDF, ESF, FEASR), but does not appear in itself as an area of funding. Axis 3 of the OP is focusing on enhanced productivity of various economic sectors, including the action specifically targeting the competitiveness of companies servicing tourism destinations. This is the main regional level funding scheme for tourism service providers, offering crucial support for these organizations to develop and improve products/services and to engage into local and regional networks (e.g. Product Clubs).   The targeted PI is best positioned to strengthen the coordination and cooperation between public & private sectors in promoting a city as an authentic tourism destination. Municipalities like MVV potentially become facilitators of the process, empowering SMEs and creating synergies with public needs at the same time.   In order to put a more specific emphasis on the support of historic locations currently underdeveloped or underexploited, and also to favor authentic forms of tourism sustaining and promoting cultural heritage, the PI should be improved in terms of launching specifically targeted calls, and the inclusion of selection criteria favoring these initiatives and cases. As a result, coordinated and effective thematic attractions will be developed, the quality of services will be improved and synergies will be reached on a regional level.   Which partners are working on this? Municipality of Vittorio Veneto Riga Planning region Development program 2014-2020 The spatial development policy framework of LV regions consists of sustainable development strategies and development programs, with additional thematic plans as applicable. The RPR Development Program (as its targeted PI) is a 7 years planning document and is formulated in accordance with the National Development Plan. RPR’s long term vision (“Quality in all spheres of life - becoming humanly attractive, effective, open-minded and tolerant region - competitive in the global arena”) is served by 8 priorities. Out of these “Globally competitive industries” is most relevant for LCF: it sets four focus areas where RPR’s inherent strengths can be turned into advantages, including (3) cultural and creative industries, and (4) tourism.   The successful incorporation of LCF themes into the targeted PI is crucial for RPR, as its smaller settlements - with rich cultural heritage but not presenting proper urban leverage to compete against neighboring Riga - are slowly but constantly declining in economic and demographic terms, leading to disproportionate regional development and unexploited potentials. By empowering these locations overshadowed by Riga, their visitor economy could be boosted, triggering further economic growth and urban attractiveness. RPR plans to introduce specific focus on the support of authentic tourism and its framework conditions, exploiting the existing but untapped potentials, and at the same time generating sources for long term sustaining and preservation.   Which partners are working on this? Riga Planning Region Operational Programme Competitiveness and Cohesion 2014 – 2020, Investment Priority 6c The aim of the PI is to contribute to the EU objective of investment in growth and employment in CR, through development of infrastructure (traffic, energy, environmental protection, ICT) and by supporting entrepreneurship and research. Within LCF IFT will address SO6c1, aiming to increase employment and tourist expenditure through enhancing cultural heritage (under TO6: “Preserving and protecting the environment and promoting resource efficiency”, TO budget: EUR 1,99 billion).   By promoting sustainable and more efficient use of resources, the PI addresses a clear EU priority. The EC Position Paper highlights the need for enhanced protection, valorization and management of natural/cultural heritage while considering its touristic/business potential. The PI is also aligned with CR Economic Programme, prioritizing cultural heritage investments with respect to its significant potential in the development of tourism (a labor intensive sector), strengthening entrepreneurship in general, and job creation in particular.   To better address the strategic objectives of the PI, and also to achieve more effective expenditures and more synergic regional cooperation between attractions, IFT wishes to incorporate changes in the management and selection processes in order to turn more attention to authentic, local resource driven tourism offered by secondary tourism locations, especially in North-Eastern CR (Varaždin, Čakovec, Osijek, Ilok, Vukovar, Slavonski Brod, Đakovo and Lipik-Pakrac).   Which partners are working on this?

Project summary The European Crafts sector is a rich and complex interwoven tapestry combining tradition, heritage, culture, skills and design. Crafts encompasses a wide range of disciplines as a mirror of the diversity of European cultural identity. CRAFTS CODE aims to enhance the competitiveness of craft SMEs by developing a framework to stimulate policy learning and build capacity to improve the implementation of regional development policies and programmes. The project idea is based on efforts made by the partners for the implementation of policies and projects supporting the competitiveness and the skilling up potentials of SMEs belonging to the crafts sector, in order to innovate it and mitigate the risk of disappearance of many traditional crafts and manufacturing. Crafts is a peculiar productive sector deeply linked with tradition and transmission of "knowledge", and plays a key role as innovator in Europe’s economy and social stability, even if most SMEs are not performing R&D activities as traditionally defined. Their competitiveness depends on their capability to improve processes, products and services.  €1,558,177.00 from 1 Aug 2019 to 31 Jul 2023 Topic SME competitiveness What will this project change? CRAFTS CODE will tackle adequately the key issues fostering knowledge about the development and implementation of new business models and products innovation systems for micro and SMEs in the crafts sector. The Overall objective is to improve the SMEs competitiveness in the crafts sector by developing a framework stimulating policy learning and capacity building activities with the contribution of all involved stakeholders and improving the implementation of regional development policies and programmes, supporting handicrafts SMEs in all stages of their life cycle to develop and achieve growth and engage in innovation. Artistic craftsmanship is a entrepreneurial sector with unique characteristics: product, company dimensions, cultural and social content. So the sector needs specific policies and tailored actions.  Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? ERDF ROP 2014/2020 Tuscany Region - Priority Axis 3 "Promote the competitiveness of SMEs" ( particular focus on R.A. 3.4 Increase in the level of internationalization of productive systems) The ROP ERDF 2014-2020 is the reference document supporting the business system and promoting regional interventions to increase the competitiveness of the regional economy. Among 6 thematic areas,the crafts sector is mainly linked to Axis 3 Promoting the competitiveness of SMEs (€152.4 million - 19.2%). 3 measures are included in Axis 3: 1) Support to Start-up and creation of new businesses, 2) Development of new business models and incentives for the purchase of qualified services for internationalization 3) Support the creation and expansion of advanced capabilities for the development of products and services. In this frame, the support to crafts micro and SMEs is not always fitting with the characteristics and needs of the local ecosystem.Crafts sector has specific characteristics belonging to emerging and traditional system, so the policy instrument itself could be improved and adjusted in order to create a wider range of growing possibilities and access to finance and overcome the negative trends of mortality rate of crafts' companies. Among the 3 measures, the access to ERDF for crafts' micro and SMEs reveals low rate. CRAFTS CODE project intends to impact on this policy instrument through a double strategy: 1)provide instruments and increase the level of innovation of the crafts sector in order to have access to ERDF, 2) build concrete dialogue with MA improving the design of thematic calls and including specific measures/requirements tailored for crafts' SMEs. Which partners are working on this? Municipality of Florence ERDF \ ROP 2014/2020 Southern & Eastern Regional Operational Programme \ TO3 - SMEs competitiveness The program aims to complement wider investment programmes in targeted high growth and innovative sectors to support the creation of new quality jobs, boost innovation, as well as helping to grow the local economies in the Southern & Eastern region of Ireland. Investment Priorities: 3(a): Promoting entrepreneurship, in particular by facilitating the economic exploitation of new ideas and fostering the creation of new firms. Specific Objective:To increase employment levels in micro-enterprises in the S&E Region by supporting business start-ups, business expansion and higher innovation levels in micro-enterprises. The Irish craft sector is perceived as innovative and with a growth potential, that can lead to the creation of jobs, boost innovation and help the sustainable growth of local economies. However, there is also the recognition that the current policies and support mechanism are unable to address the specific characteristics of these businesses. In the case of the Southern region, this has been further highlighted in the Needs Analysis performed at the beginning of the current programme, that identifies the low level of business start-ups in the Southern Region along with limited access to credit for SMEs and the relatively low levels of innovation and internationalisation of the region’s micro-enterprise sector. In Ireland, the SME sector accounts for more than 70% of private employment, the Crafts Sector is made up of over 3,000 micro and SMEs employing over 6,000. Which partners are working on this? Design and Crafts Council of Ireland Sustainable growth and jobs Structural Funds Programme of Finland (CCI number: 2014 116M2OP001) Under this based on action line: 2.1. Improving SMEs competitiveness policies The policy instrument addressed is the Sustainable growth and jobs Structural Funds Programme of Finland (CCI number: 2014 116M2OP001), the action line 2.1 “Improving the competitiveness of SMEs. The 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 the development of new business operations.” It aims also to reduce unemployment, fight social exclusion, and invest in education to ensure the availability of a skilled workforce. Its extension to the Regional Policy of Ostrobothnia, in its flagship initiative “vitality of enterprises” (improving competitiveness of SMEs), highlights: - The importance of a versatile business life, valuable cultural environments and cultural heritage, - Skilled work force This holistic approach aims to tackle and limit, e.g. the strong dependence from big international companies, to balance and create a versatile industrial structure, and improve change readiness and flexibility. The creative sector is part of a versatile ecosystem. The policy instrument should be improved by connecting it to future trends (e.g. sustainability, lack of resources) impacting entrepreneurial activity, digitalization to provide new opportunities for SMEs, link it to regional realities, culture, businesses, employability and skills, and a versatile business ecosystem.             Which partners are working on this? Vaasa University of Applied Sciences Regional Council of Ostrobothnia Plurirregional Operational Programme of Spain 2014-2020-OT3 The programme aims to help Spain anticipate and adapt to global changes in the fields of energy, urban development, water, and transport. It aims to contribute to the fulfilment of the Europe 2020 "resource efficiency" flagship initiative, by bringing major economic opportunities, improving productivity, driving down costs and boosting competitiveness. This support in particular regarding sustainable growth will help recover the competitiveness of Spanish economy through a more sustainable resource efficient model. This programme is the major Spanish programme as regards the ERDF (EUR 5,5 billion contribution). Among all thematic areas, the crafts sector is mainly linked to “TO3 - SMEs competitiveness”. This priority will focus mainly on following aspects: the promotion of the internationalization of SMEs; the promotion of entrepreneurial spirit and the creation of companies; as well as facilitating access to finance, especially in the most disadvantaged areas.     Which partners are working on this? EOI Foundation Competitive Central Hungary Operational Programme (CCHOP,ERDF/ESF) The Competitive Central Hungary OP (CCHOP) is the follow-up of the Central Hungarian ROP for the programming period 2014-2020. CCHOP seeks to answer the challenge of enhancing the development and the competitiveness of a relatively developed region that features large internal disparities. Though CH’s economic and innovation potential is outstanding in comparison with other Hungarian regions, there are a large number of peripheral, lagging and poorly accessible sub-regions and settlements within the region. The budget allocated to CCHOP amounts to 3.9% of total funding available from Structural Funds over the period 2014-2020. The main priorities are: 1) improvement of enterprises' competitiveness; 2) R&D and technological innovation; 3) development of ICT; 4) development of tourism and protection of nature; 5) development of energy efficiency and enhanced use of renewable energy resources; 6) settlement development and public services; 7) social inclusion and human development; 8) increase of employment; 9) development of public administration.     Which partners are working on this? Budapest Foundation for Enterprise Promotion Operational Programme "Innovation and Competitiveness" 2014-2020 Small and Medium Enterprises are the main target group of the OPIC 2014-2020. The Programme's strategy, as a part of the implementation of the EU structural and investment funds in Bulgaria, is closely related to the Investment for growth and jobs goal and Bulgaria‘s contribution to "Europe 2020" targets. The ERDF support under OPIC 2014-2020 aims at addressing the needs, overcoming the challenges, and seizing the opportunities for development of Bulgarian economy. This will be done by engaging in smart growth (under priority axes 1, 2) and sustainable growth (under priority axes 3, 4). The Programme also aims at achieving a complementary effect in terms of inclusive growth. The Expected impacts are: • Increase the share of innovative enterprises of the total number of enterprises by 10% • Support more than 9000 enterprises through grant support and financial instruments • Employment increase of 19.6% in supported enterprises • Mobilise more than EUR 1 billion in private investment • Increase the export volume of goods and services by SMEs and SMEs’ productivity • Contribute to reducing the energy intensity of the economy • Build a gas interconnector between Bulgaria and Serbia contributing to the development of energy infrastructure This policy instrument needs to be improved as crafts sector currently lack of thematic calls and specific measures for crafts' SMEs.
