Slovenian Opportunity II: economic animation to support SMEs' cross-border cooperation  (OPSLOCOP)
Start date: Dec 31, 2005, End date: Nov 29, 2007 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project aims at supporting SME operating in the two border areas, that often possess an unexpressed potential for growth. The objective is the improvement of relations among enterprises through several actions that see the participation of economic and institutional bodies from both areas. The actions aim at increasing the level of knowledge, competitiveness and innovation, thus favouring institutional and economic cooperation. The general objective consists in widening the opportunities for the development of SME in the eligible area by promoting the creation of shared innovative entrepreneurial opportunities, pursuing the greatest integration possible also through available telematic means. The project specifically aims at developing a favourable environment for commercial, technological and production cooperation of FVG enterprises located in the eligible area with Slovenian enterprises in the cross-border area. The project strategy ranges from the setting up of networks among the various economic actors to the promotion of new telematic technologies in favour of trade; from the introduction of new technologies to the direct meeting of firms to develop new joint enterprises; from the supply of tailored trade information equipment to the drawing up of guidelines on the use of structural funds. In its initial phase the project focuses on a number of specific economic sectors where to concentrate project actions and identify the most significant issues. At the same time a mapping of the resources and problems of the sector is carried out, in order to be used in the drafting of future proposals. Therefore the project intends to promote familiarity with the typical economic features of the territory so as to understand the production context and identify the potential for development. Lastly, it aims at providing targeted technical assistance to enhance and strengthen the economic fabric made up of cross-border SME.
