After the event in Brussels, on 29 November 2018 INVEGA organized a meeting with the local stakeholders’ group during which presented information on the financial support for innovative SMEs in the other partner countries.

The stakeholders’ group discussed the context of economic innovation, the need for the policy instruments for innovative SMEs, the measures and procedures (current and foreseen) taken in order to reach the objectives established in the strategic documents.

It was mutually agreed that these discussions as well as information provided were very useful and should serve as a stimulus for future development of financial instruments dedicated for innovation.
