The SEE BRIDGE consortium recently celebrated a significant achievement with the successful organisation of its Peer Learning Workshop entitled “Creating a Sustainable Future: Exploring Best Practices and Funding Opportunities”. This workshop, aimed at intermediaries in EU and non-EU countries working in energy-intensive sectors, marked an important step in the consortium’s mission to foster transnational cooperation and knowledge exchange.  

The workshop was carefully structured to address the key challenges and opportunities facing SMEs, particularly in light of the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) and how to leverage digital and green initiatives to successfully adapt to this new legislation.  

The first part of the workshop, moderated by a representative of the partner organisation Qi Arrow (Spain), focused on the CBAM legislation and what intermediaries should know about this instrument implemented by the European Union to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and address carbon leakage. During the second part, representatives of intermediary organisations in the partner countries shared their best practices; for example, Türkiye Exporter Assembly’s InoSuit program aims to strengthen innovation management competence through university-industry cooperation, while Ireland Enterprise’s Green Transition Fund provides comprehensive support to companies navigating their decarbonization journey. Finally, the Slovenian Enterprise Fund’s Small Value Incentives Through Vouchers provides simplified access to co-financing for SMEs, enabling them to improve their competitiveness and capabilities.
