ResilieNtWEB is a free of charge strategic support programme for SMEs to help them increase their resilience, i.e. their ability to anticipate market changes, adjust to them and learn from the process.
The key elements of a winning business strategy in our economic system are using creativity, collaboration and as few natural resources as possible. Having these attributes makes it possible to evolve and deal with changes to the environmental, economic and social context.
The businesses supported will identify commercial opportunities at a local and/or international level and will draw up a programme of innovative actions to bring them to fruition in a sustainable way.
The project is aimed mainly at SMEs in the sectors of food, construction and tourism.
ResilieNtWEB brings together the expertise of organisations from the south of England, north of France, Belgium and Luxembourg.
The project will close in May 2015. It is supported by the European Interreg IVb NWE programme.
