SURVIVE: Surviving The Storm: Identifying & Linking Internal Capabilities with Business Continuity


The project is going to perform study visits on leading SMEs to investigate their structure and exchange practices, study visits to SURVIVORs SMEs in partner countries affected by the crisis (GR, SP, PT) and collect the material necessary to create a training programme as a roadmap to success. A powerful tool will be created as a platform for further development, connection of executives between SMEs, exchange of practices and a flexible learning program that will link the specific needs of SMEs (which will derive from the desk and field research) in terms of internal capabilities, with the training offered, in a way that will allow effective use of resources (people/time) and connect learning with business results.

The main project objective is analysed in creating a powerful tool &a flexible training program that will manage to link the market needs with the training offered, in a way that will allow effective use of resources (people, time) &clear connection of training with business results.


The activities of the project are:

  • To gather the existing examples, good practices and expertise, available in each participating country and prepare them for the experience share to carry out methodological as “Capacity building” and “Common learning and training”.
  • To organise 7 Transnational Project Meetings (TPM)
  • To organise the respective exchange and trainings
  • To realise the agreed communication, dissemination activities and measures
  • To organise regional and local activities to promote the project across target groups to involve relevant stakeholders as direct or indirect project beneficiaries with dissemination activities for each partner in press, social media etc (as an obligation of the partners);
  • To contribute to the evaluation and reporting process, i.e. most of all by a proper and sound reporting

  Seven (7) Short-term joint staff training events will be organized in partners’ countries (Italy, Greece, Bulgaria, Poland, Spain). 2 Staff members from each partner will participate to the training activities. These training events aim at visiting either SMEs in each partner country that have survived through the crisis but also niche SMEs that have upgraded their management system and have dealt with the crisis the past few years, and they have profit, and are sustainable.
