Action learning in the Swiss Alps
First smE-MPOWER Training Event, 10 -15 March 2009:
On the backbone of the smE-MPOWER knowledge library and following the
explicit interest of the community members, the first training workshop
was held in Visperterminen, up the slope of the Valais Alps, nine
subjects covered helping companies identify options for business
innovation, supporting their choice of strategic partnerships and
facilitating the conception and set-up of collaborative projects which
might then finally be matched with various funding mechanisms.
action learning in the mornings and evenings was nicely balanced by
afternoon skiing and joint cooking. The panorama of the Swiss Alps and
a great community spirit let the time fly by much too fast.
