Abstract

The project intended to find out how SMEs in various European regions were
reacting to the push for economic internationalisation; and specifically, how they
were restructuring themselves in technological and organisational terms and which
management concepts they were using for this purpose. On this basis it examined
the suitability and effectiveness of different policy mechanisms to support the
internationalization of SMEs. Specific problems confronting SMEs as well as
successful strategies of action (“best practice”) were identified.
