Platform for exchange of experience between stakeholders

By Project SMEOrigin

Platform for exchange of experience aiming at helping SMEs in the food sector was developed and launched by SMEOrigin project partners. The platform is bringing together European companies, state agencies, NGOs, professional associations, educational institutions and individual experts working in the sector. The main goal of the platform is to facilitate the exchange of experience and feedback (both good practices but also bad practices) between all involved in the sector and contribute both to solving individual and local challenges and developing a better environment for the SMEs across Europe.

How it works:

1.    Stakeholders are invited to fill a template with their BIO, specialization and interests. 
2.    The information is fed to a database, open to the participants so that they can easily browse and find new contacts of interest. This database will also serve for matchmaking with potential partners and markets in the future.
3.    Stakeholders are also invited to participate in the Google group SMEOrigin - Networking and cooperation and actively exchange experience real-time with other stakeholders
4.    A LinkedIn group is created to serve those active users of LinkedIn who prefer to use the network. 

Benefits of joining:

  • Get access to tens of colleagues, fellow companies, potential partners and administration officials from all parts of Europe and find helpful know-how and new connections

  • Find new partners and new markets
  • Find solutions for your challenges – someone on the other side of Europe may already have them.
  • Suggest and participate in developing new policies and initiatives for increasing SME competitiveness

Start networking now:

  • Fill in the form and share your details, field of work and interests. You will be automatically added to the database of contacts

  • Check the database for relevant contacts, potential partners or clients you want to get in touch
  • Join the Google Group to ask a question or share a proposal with the whole community. If you use LinkedIn, you can join the LinkedIn group as well
  • Or write directly to the ones you wish to connect to.


Participation in the platform is entirely voluntarily and free of any charge. You are free to invite other professionals that may be interested in joining the community.

The platform was created in the framework of Interreg Europe project SMEOrigin. The overall objective of the project is to improve regional development policies and funding programmes aiming at increasing the competitiveness of SMEs in the food sector. More specifically, the project has been designed to foster products with a geographical indication in the involved regions by improving the quality standards of SMEs, fostering their digital transformation, and promoting the authenticity of the products.
