MobiliseSME: Grenzüberschreitende Mobilität

Von Rudolf Wagner.

Im September endet die erste Erprobungsphase eines EU-geförderten Projektes für kleine und mittlere Unternehmen, die zu wenig Erfahrung, finanzielle Mittel oder europäische Kontakte haben, um grenzüberschreitend die eigene wirtschaftliche Basis zu erweitern. Mit MobiliseSME sollen die Skills vermittelt werden, die in Europa zum sicheren Erfolg führen. Eine Abschlusskonferenz wird am 28. September in den Räumen der Monte dei Paschi Belgio Schuman, Avenue Auderghem 22-28, 1040 Brussels stattfinden. Im Mittelpunkt dieser Veranstaltung steht die Analyse aller Möglichkeiten und Chancen für grenzüberschreitende Mobilität von Mitarbeitern der MSMEs (Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises) in der EU.

Treibende Kraft dieser Beschäftigungs-Initiative, die auf dem EU-Arbeitsmarkt dieselben Kräfte freisetzen soll wie ERASMUS im akademischen Bereich, sind die kleinen und mittleren Unternehmen, die in der Vereinigung der European Entrepreneurs CEA-PME zusammengeschlossen sind. „Seit 2015 sind wir die führenden Partner des ERASMUS+ Projektes für Duale Ausbildung in der EU und der ‚Mobilities for professionals and qualified employees of MsMEs (MobiliseSME)‘, die von der EU finanziert werden“, sagtre CEA-PME Präsident Mario Ohoven. Es geht also auch um Geld, das man aus den europäischen Kassen erhofft.

Was sind die Argumente, die für die Fortsetzung des MobiliseSME-Programms sprechen? Die „Mitwirkenden“ einiger grenzüberschreitenden Start-ups und bestehender Unternehmen haben ihre Erfahrungen aufgezeichnet. Sie sind positiv. Der Europäische Mittelstand und junge Mitarbeiter kommen zusammen; sie wollen eine umweltschonende Politik verwirklichen; und sie wollen Finanzquellen für ihre Initativen finden.

Ein Erfahrungsbericht

Jim Deves is an entrepreneur in the IT sector. His company in Greece, TheRightClick.gr, helps clients all over Europe with their IT needs providing them with custom business applications, web and mobile apps. When Mr Deves heard about MobiliseSME from his professional contacts in Brussels, he thought this was a great opportunity to develop network and share knowledge with new European partners.

TheRightClick.gr registered on the MobiliseSME Matchmaking Platform and partnered up with a German company, CCVossel, and an Estonian company, Nikitech, both specialised in the development of IT solutions. Mr Deves had already collaborated with the latter on other projects and proposed their staff to do an exchange together while he was happy to find a new partner in the former via the platform.

„Mobile People. Mobile Enterprises. Mobile Europe”

During the first week of June, TheRightClick.gr hosted both Jaan Tohver from the Estonian firm, an expert on mobile apps now in his second week of exchange, and Vincent Petritz from CCVossel, a software developer now in his first week of the exchange. They have all been working together combining their expertise to test and develop new IT technologies. They have also engaged in briefing session where they have exchanged knowledge about working methods and approaches, learning they could apply each other’s best practices to their own companies.

Mr Deves has said “This has been a very interesting and good experience,  both personally and on a business level. It was all about the exchange of experience and learning from each other. I could learn from how other Europeans work and also what business is like in other countries. Moreover we now have points of contact in other markets, like Estonia. It truly reflected the project’s slogan – Mobile People. Mobile Enterprises. Mobile Europe”.

Mr Tohver and Mr Petritz are also very enthusiastic with the latter stating “I really wish that all my colleagues could have such an experience, to get in touch with another working culture – so I hope that MobiliseSME will continue as a permanent program” while the Estonian programmer hoped that “the pilot project would continue into a permanent scheme”.
