Next stop for UpGradeSME: San Sebastian

Together with the Municipality of Leeuwarden BDF visits cities all across Europe to learn about Internationalisation policy in the INTERREG Europe project UpGradeSME. Through this project local governments and business support organisations work together to optimise policy measures on SME internationalisation stimulation. Existing policy measures will be shared across Europe and evaluated. After analysis they will be improved and implemented.

The next stop in the UpgradeSME knowledge exchange experience will be San Sebastian.

Being European Capital of Culture in 2018, cultural tourism in relation to Cultural Capital 2016 (title of San Sebastian) is a topic of high interest. What is the legacy of the Cultural Capital title 2016 in international perspective? Did it generate sustainable internationalisation for the SMEs in the region?

Besides common grounds on Cultural Capital and Smart Cities, San Sebastian is a well fit partner for a study visit because of the cities cooperation with the regional university on the topic of internationalisation. The university offers masters on subjects related to internationalisation. How does this relate to the eco-system of the municipality? Leeuwarden is as of today starting with Master programs on innovation and internationalisation and we are keen to learn more about this. In San Sebastian secondary schools also cooperate with the industy on innovation. This is also a subject we are very keen to learn more about.

BDF and the Municipality of Leeuwarden will visit San Sebastian early 2018.
