The event will be live-streamed on this page (on the video tile below) and on our social media channels.

GLOBSEC is organizing a series of public-private dialogues on the Recovery & Resilience Plans (RRP) across different thematic streams. We would like to invite you to the session focusing on the Digitalization of SMEs in Central Europe.

The regional consultation of national RRP strategies aims to ignite a conversation about implementation and concrete solutions, and ‘compare notes’ across the region. GLOBSEC brings together stakeholders including national RRP leads and policymakers and private sector leaders to facilitate a vibrant dialogue with regards to the structural reform plans. In the past, GLOBSEC has held the Slovak national chapter of the RRP platform around four topical pillars, including innovation, digitalization of SMEs, energy transition (building renovation), and the future of mobility.
