The FUSION project aims to promote sustainable development among small companies and to engender environmentally-responsible enterprise in the 2 Seas area, by supporting SMEs in understanding and benefiting from new business models and eco-innovation.
9 organisations involved in business support services will collaborate in the FUSION project to help over 250 SMEs from the pre-start-up to high growth phase. These SMEs will then become the driving force of the eco-innovation revolution, embedding new business models such as the “life-cycle mindset” and “continuous optimisation”.
By bringing together recognised experts in the provision of business support services, the FUSION project will work to identify, test and implement a range of innovative business support services and tools designed to help SMEs.
