Project description

The concept of internationalization in the professional operations of SMEs is often approached without previous preparation or adequate strategies.

Project outputs:

  • A training manual for future Internationalization Service Officer professionals
  • A set of videocasts with SMEs’ representatives to share their experience in internationalization
  • A self-assessment and training app to support start-ups

Target group:

The direct target group of the project will be employees of Economic and Industrial Chambers, employees of VET providers and VET trainers who work with and support SMEs (trade and services) in the field of internationalization.
