HOW CAN LARGE ENTERPRISES AND SMEs REINVENT NEW RELATIONAL AND BUSINESS MODELS FOR A LONG-TERM INDUSTRIAL GROWTH?
To assure a steady and sustainable industrial growth we need to reinvent new paradigms between value chain players. In this context new forms of relation between Large enterprises and SMEs have to be explored.
Large Industries in Europe, like in the whole World, are drivers for markets and main players in structuring the respective supply chain. While globalisation has certainly created for large industry opportunities for a worldwide effective services/products shopping around with economic advantages, it has broken the past structural relations between Large Enterprises and their European based SME system. It is not credible today to step back on this tendency, but attentions may be putted into create evidence of common advantages for Large Industry and SME in boosting again structural relations based on high-tech common strategies.
European small and medium enterprises and the unprecedented challenges facing them today are at the centre of the European Commission’s interest. SMEs are the growth and job creation engines in Europe. They will provide the innovative products and services of the future to respond to our societal challenges.
A cooperation between the two systems will be required if we want to assure a paradigm where the creation of an healthy value chain based on a of supply chain could per se generate value and have different types of impact: economic, social, ethical.
During a two hours workshop NMBP Stakeholders and National Contact Points will work together to try to answer to this calling question.
The outcome will be a set of possible recommendations and thoughts for the future steps.
