The Province of Groningen hosted the first SMEPlus stakeholder meeting in Netherlands on 4 December 2019. Stakeholders from VNO-NCW Noord, Province of Drenthe & Province of Groningen learned about SMEPlus project & different policies towards SMEs.

Stakeholders are interested in the project and keen to hear about the progress to learn from the project. They will also use own communication tools to channel project results further to their partners. Further stakeholders could be invited to join the stakeholder group, e.g. SME's, representative of an industrial area. The next stakeholder meeting is planned for March 2020.
