The activities carried out by SME-TraiNet are research, national workshops (including working groups) and international conferences at European level.
- Research on current training and support structures for young businesses in the participating countries in order to determine good practice in training and support as well as current trends and needs of SMEs/ young businesses operating in the crafts and services sector
- Two workshops (based on the results of the research) per participating partner country, with the purpose to discuss identified good practice examples with national experts and to develop strategies how these could be spread around the country. Furthermore, identified current and emerging needs will be discussed in especially established working groups and solutions will be developed to cope with these.
- Two international conferences in which all network partners as well as other relevant stakeholders will participate. The conferences will represent a platform to raise awareness at the political level and to discuss and exchange the results of the national workshops and working groups at European level
