Future Ecom

The project:
Future Ecom project addresses policy makers and business support agencies across EU who need to fully understand the key barriers for SMEs to exploit and benefit from a global internet driven market place in general and particularly enhance digitisation and automation. This is done by exchanging experiences and good practices across the 8 EU regions within the Future Ecom project. 
Interregional collaboration is the key in improving regional policies. Exchange of good practices between business support organisations and Local Stakeholder Groups will demonstrate that European regions have much to learn from each other in order to enable SMEs to apply to new business models.
The overall objective of Future Ecom is to improve the effectiveness and impact of the policy instruments addressed within the partnership stimulating the exploitation of digitisation in SMEs in order to improve their competitiveness and growth potential in the future.  
Future Ecom aims to provide policy makers with the knowledge and understanding of the potentials digitisation holds and alsomake them aware of the challenges and barriers that SMEs face in terms of preparing their internal processes and their company for the digital age.
These objectives will be fulfilled by
1. Exchanging of experiences and sharing of good practices among the 8 EU regions, through targeted capacity building and experience exchange meetings.
2. Fostering the preparation, application and monitoring of 8 Action Plans for integrating and deploying good practices within the regional policies.
3. Promoting the involvement of stakeholders in the interregional learning process through the establishment of 8 Local Stakeholder Groups.
4. Disseminating the project results at local, regional and EU level by project communication tools and Interreg Europe´s policy learning platforms.    
The main output will be the elaboration of an Action Plan per partner region which is based on interregional exchange of experiences. The knowledge gained, and capacity built by partners will
enable the design of new initiatives and/or business support programs which compare with best practices.
In the end, the monitoring of the implemented initiatives will improve the impact of regional policy instruments addressed by the Future Ecom partners.
The results will be disseminated across the EU.
