Introduction into the workshops.
Workshops in parallel.

“SmartSME’s - facilitate the access to digitalisation for SMEs in the field of natural fibres (final conference)”

This workshop invites participation from individuals with experience and/or interest in the field of digitalisation of SMEs and natural fibre value chains. This is the final conference of the EUSALP AG5 SmartSMEs project. The main aim is to provide information of main outputs of the project.

Related lead questions are:

  • What is the actual state of alpine SMEs in the natural fibre sector with regard to digitalisation?
  • What are obstacles on one hand and opportunities/potentials on the other hand for a digitalisation effort of SMEs?
  • What is the way ahead on an operational and policy level?

Finally the establishment of a network of facilitators that help SMEs in their access to digitalisation will be discussed. The workshop will provide participants with concepts, cases, and networks to further the application of their own work.
