Event spotlight: Useful advice and information for SMEs

Tags: , , , , , , ,

During these unpredictable and uncertain times we have seen an explosion in the number of events and the amount of content and advice available online. Whilst this wealth of knowledge can be valuable for businesses, the volume can sometimes be quite overwhelming and it can be difficult to find what you are looking for. At Promoting Enterprise we have collected information on a few different events covering various topics of interests for SMEs to help in your search.

Let us know your thoughts on the events and get in touch (promotingenterprise@gopacom.eu) if you want us to feature your event in an upcoming post!

The discussion was moderated by Sebastiano Toffaletti, Secretary-General at European Digital SME Alliance.

Are you an SME looking for further digital skills training? Still looking for the exact training for your needs? Look no further!

The European Digital Academy was launched in early 2020 by the European Commission with support from the European Parliament. The project aims to make emerging technological information and knowledge more accessible to SMEs. The project is coordinated by the EUN Partnership together with the following partner organisations: DIGITALEUROPE, REAKTOR, European DIGITAL SME Alliance, and Public Libraries 2030.

As part of their efforts to build an information hub for SMEs, the European Digital Academy has launched a survey to assess the current training supply available to SMEs.

Take this opportunity to make your SME voice heard and fill out the survey about available trainings for SMEs and citizens right here.
