It is now official: the 16th INSME Annual Meeting will take place on the 1st of April 2020 in Paris, France. This year’s event is of particular importance as it will be the occasion to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the OECD “Bologna Charter on SME Policies”, the Ministerial declaration that put the basis for the establishment of our Network, which was then launched in 2004 during the 2nd OECD Ministerial Conference on SMEs in Istanbul. A joint OECD-INSME conference exploring high growth firms and the policies they deserve will be organized to properly celebrate this occasion.
A group of INSME experts and delegates to the OECD Working Party on SMEs and Entrepreneurship from Romania, Hungary, The Netherlands, United Kingdom, USA and many other countries is currently working to select the topics to be addressed and identify the personalities who will enrich the conference’s agenda and stimulate the discussion among the stakeholders attending the event.
Furthermore the afternoon of the 31st of March will be dedicated to the INSME General Assembly, the gathering during which Members are updated on the life of the Network, present their activities, brainstorm on future projects and initiatives.
Save the date on the 1st of April 2020 and stay tuned for updates.
