What is the expected added value that MER project and the transnational partnership should bring to your institutions and the SMEs in your Region?
We had the chance to organize the first visit of MER project sites. This challenge was even more interesting because our territory is rich in innovative experience. We made choices to better meet the concerns of partners. The main added value of MER project is constructive exchanges that have been possible, through different territories, different skills, including complementary professions. This fact gives us a broader knowledge of best practices through the Mediterranean countries and allows us to consider term integration of some concepts on our business areas and companies. These working groups also give us the opportunity to make transnational brainstorming, sharing our experiences, our successes but also the difficulties encountered in the field. It is the creation of a network of exchanges and enhancement of territorial expertise in the matter of sustainable economic development. The capitalization of knowledge and technical capacity of partners will allow, in the outcome of the project, to establish a real toolbox of sustainable development and green marketing. From a territorial point of view, the enhancement of best practices value, local actors and territory, encourages us in the continuation of the already made efforts. The project started recently, many other exchanges will soon emerge. Promoting sustainable territorial and industrial areas is a strong investment factor for the future of land and businesses. We are particularly committed to this issue.
