SMEs and global competitiveness

What are the models enabling innovation, international cooperation and socio-economic relaunch during and after Covid-19? Are SMEs ready to tackle challenges brought by contemporary technological, social, economic and environmental changes? How can companies be profitable, deliver social impact and contribute to public sector quest for more efficiency, cost-effectiveness and human-centered solutions? The AdWisers was in invited by the Rotary International to deliver an inspirational seminar focusing on supporting SMEs capabilities to be futures-proof. We analysed and addressed Industry 4.0., public and private partnership, internationalization, incubation & acceleration for startups and SMEs, technical assistance, research-industry-market linkages, access to international funding and standards. Selected Rotary’s invitees gained valuable perspectives and tools to navigate today’s world complexities and opportunities.
