On 28th November 2013, DG Research and Innovation will gather research organisations and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) participating in EU-funded projects under the Environment Programme to discuss the role of SMEs and resource efficiency in the context of green economy.
Resource efficiency is a priority for Europe. The Europe 2020 strategy highlights the role of Research and Innovation (R&I) in enabling the transition towards a smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.

In addition, the outcome of the event is expected to complement the results of the on-going public consultation on a Green Action Plan for SMEs.
