Last year of the SME Organics project: implementation and monitoring of the Regional Organic Action Plans
The SME Organics project started its last year in April 2019. In this year, the partners’ main efforts are focusing on the monitoring of the implementation of the Regional Organic Action Plans. All Plans were approved by the Interreg Europe Joint Technical Secretariat. They encompass different actions aiming at enhancing entrepreneurship and supporting the existing Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in improving their performance to increase the growth capacity of the organic regional sectors. Partners are now monitoring the implementation of the different actions in close collaboration with the regional stakeholders’ groups created at the outset of the project.
Partners kicked off the implementation and monitoring phase in a partnership meeting that took place in Brussels on 26 March. The meeting was hosted by the Navarra Government Representation in Brussels.
The SME Organics project, funded by Interreg Europe programme, encompasses 8 regions across Europe. Its objective is to improve policies and programmes under the Investment for Growth and Jobs goal to enhance the competitiveness and sustainability of SMEs in the organic sector of the participating regions.
