Internationalisation of Regional SMEs
The INTRA project focuses on the role of public authorities in creating internationalisation services to be funded under the respective national Cohesion policy 2014-2020.
During the 5 years, INTRA partners will exchange, explore and disseminate good practices in ways to promote internationalisation and improve competitiveness of the respective regions involved.
The objectives of INTRA are:
- To provide a comprehensive mapping, evaluation and benchmarking of various internationalisation services available across the regions
- To highlight good practices, gaps that promote and impede on SMEs at various stages of the internationalisation process
- To develop policy recommendations based on the Good Practices and the respective regional development programmes
- To develop Action Plans that will be implemented to the needs of SMEs and gaps not filled by the existing instruments
The INTRA partners include Maribor Development Agency (SI) coordinator of INTRA, The Regional Agency for entrepreneurship and innovations – Varna (BG), Foundation FUNDECYT Scientific and Technological Park of Extremadura (ES), The University of Algarve (PT), Coventry University Enterprises Limited (UK), CAPITANK (IT). All partners are supported by their Managing Authorities for ERDF and represent the active stakeholders in internationalisation.
