What did we achieve?

During the FbD project, there were three main objectives:

  • to enable less prosperous SMEs, in regions of lower economic success, to innovate, grow or
    increase productivity
  • to support SMEs to become more data-driven and better informed about the economic,
    technological, policy and supply chain changes that will shape their futures.
  • to create a virtual transnational horizon-scanning and knowledge transfer (HSKT) hub connecting
    6 real hubs in each region to support sustainable SME growth, innovation and productivity.


This translated to the following targets for the output:
