Learning Circles for European SMEs - Mexico

Within the overall project “Capturing innovation impulses from emerging economies”, the European Innovation Council and SMEs Executive Agency (EISMEA) learning circles for European SMEs in emerging markets were conceptualised and conducted for specific sectors. 

There were three main goals for these learning circles:

1. Facilitating the market entry for participating SMEs by training them on cultural differences,

2. Learning about innovation in the emerging economy in question and trying to implement those innovative ideas in Europe,

3. Establishing new contacts in the sector within European participants and also in the emerging market.
