The overall objective of the project is to increase competitiveness of SMEs from FB&H (B&H) and the European Union by distributing adequate business related information, advice and consultancy, supporting internationalization and development of innovative and technological capacity of SMEs and higher involvement in HORIZON 2020 projects. Since this was the first project within the BITNET consortium, during its first year the focus was on strengthening internal capacities through trainings and networking events, as well as on creating prerequisites for network visibility in Bosnia and Herzegovina. During the second year, the focus is on providing real support services to SMEs so they would reach the target number of clients and planned achievements. The consortium demonstrated coherence and good internal cooperation, and a special benefit was achieved through the exchange of experience and the transfer of knowledge from EEN members in the region.
