Presentation of the exchange
The focus of exchange is generally to improve and gain new skills in the terms of mutual benefits. During these 6 months, we managed to reach important points which we have determined before starting. To make a summary of the activities, firstly, to understand the process of work and know more about the industry, customer relationship I attended some business meeting of companies. As NE, I analysed all the previous projects, tenders and bids of the company to have a better understanding of what it is the reason they have been selected or not selected. In both cases, we have been reached some conclusions to enhance the process of exchange. We started to apply different bids, tenders and able to apply the lessons which we have analysed. Now we are waiting for the results of some tenders and bids. Also, we have tried to make a better picture of the company for marketing activities and trying to understand more the importance of marketing for SMEs. We have changed the website of the company, brochure, business cards etc and attend some business activities to promote the company. Lastly, during all this process, we have managed to understand better the opportunities of European Union for SMEs and analyse the ones which fit more with the aims of the company. Now we still continue the process of application for SMEs instruments phase 1.
