Leeds Beckett presents internationalisation findings at Reggio Emilia Compete In International Seminar
Dr Brian Jones, senior lecturer at Leeds Beckett Business School was one of the keynote speakers at a recent international seminar in Northern Italy.
Brian presented to a global audience on behalf of the Interreg Compete In project, which aims to strengthen the support available to small and medium-sized companies across Europe wishing to internationalise. His keynote speech combined a summary of the academic research into the enabling factors for internationalisation with recommendations on how to shape this research into a relevant and meaningful actions for SME internationalisation.
The Compete In project focuses on three main areas: the attraction of investments, the penetration of new markets and territories, and the creation of international partnerships.
To achieve this, there are four key phases to this project:
- Research and Study Visits
- Knowledge Transfer
- Action Planning
The international seminar marked the end of the research and planning phase, and the half way point of the 5 year project.
