Adeje companies invited to take part in a seminar on digitalisation and subsidies 

The initiative, totally online, is part of the ‘SMART ECO’ project; pre-registration is required

On March 23rd Adeje hosts an online seminar on digitalisation and
subsidies, aimed at small and medium businesses, as part of the ‘Smart Eco’
project.  Companies interested in participating in this conference must
register in advance online, www.adeje.es ( https://www.survio.com/ survey
/ d / seminariosmartecomarzo2021
 ) where they will also
find full event programme.

Adeje Councillor for economic development, Raquel Rodríguez Alonso, stressed
that, “the most important thing about these conferences is that companies will
have clear information on subsidies from other supra-municipal administrations
in addition to being shown good business practices and digital tools that can
help in day-to-day management.”

Speakers with extensive experience in the business field will
attend this event. This seminar will present the opportunities that exist
for companies in terms of digitalisation, tools that are more than necessary
given the situation that has been generated by COVID-19. The presentation
is focused in a way that takes advantage of all the resources that the digital
economy has to offer.

Adeje will be hosting the I Transnational Cooperation Mission under the
SMART-ECO project, on March 23rd, 24th, 25th and 26th. The event was originally
scheduled for March of 2020 but cancelled due to the Covid pandemic, and the
organisers have decided that the event will be 100% online.

The event will look ahead to the coordination of the SMART-ECO
project for the coming months up to October 31, 2022, the expected completion
date. The mission will be divided into 4 parts: 1) Public seminar on
digitalisation and subsidies for SMEs, 2) Monitoring Committee of the project
partners, 3) Technical Work Workshops, and 4) Individual meetings between the
Adeje Council, as the leader of this section of the project, and the rest of
the partners. 

INTERREG VA

SMART-ECO is an initiative included in the INTERREG VA Spain-Portugal MAC
(Madeira-Azores-Canarias) 2014-2020 Cooperation Program, was approved by the
European Commission on June 3, 2015 and aims to contribute to the development
of the EU strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth and the
achievement of economic, social and territorial cohesion of the outermost
regions of Madeira, Azores and the Canary Islands, as well as the geographically
closest countries: Cape Verde, Senegal and Mauritania.

SMART-ECO contemplates the improvement of the digital competitiveness of
companies and entrepreneurs in the MAC zone, supporting their growth in
regional, national and international markets and in innovation.  The
sixteen project partners will participate in this event, which is structured
around three work blocks: creation of a collaborative framework for the
generation of a local digital ecosystem; technological innovation in the
local productive fabric (‘digital adopters’) and promotion of ‘digital natives’
and start-ups.

The projects of the INTERREG MAC Programs are led by a Principal Beneficiary /
Lead Partner; Adeje Council is the leader of the SMART-ECO project, so that the
local Adeje administration is responsible for the development of the project
programme.
