The purpose of this workshop was to present and explain the steps needed to set up the SME Initiative in practice on the basis of the examples of Spain and Malta. The Spanish and Maltese authorities shared their experience with other countries. Presentations from the EIB, EIF and the Commission Services involved in the SME Initiative complemented the Spanish and Maltese presentations. Two interactive Q&A sessions provided lessons learned and clarifications on all organisational and technical issues. This presented a good opportunity for all Member States to get responses from competent experts who prepared and implement the SME Initiative.
