About the FOUNDATION Project
FOUNDATION is an Interreg Europe funded SME Competitiveness project that brings together nine partners in a consortium led by Cork Institute of Technology. The project is focused on supporting regions pre and post shocks and closures of anchor tenants in their industrial ecosystems. The impacts of a closure of course go beyond direct employees and ripple, wave like throughout the regional services sector and economy. Management of such anticipated structural change requires proactive renewal of business approaches and policy supports.
To combat the economic effects of COVID-19, the FOUNDATION project hosted the webinar Policy Support for Industrial Resilience to share policies, initiatives or programmes supporting economic resilience which are being utilised in our partner regions. This special edition newsletter shares each of these 9 good practices in detail along with a link to the recorded webinar and Speaker PowerPoint slides .
