CB4LLP Action Plan

Useful ideas

The areas need to focus are the following:

1. Innovation – Creativity Generator at the work place which will examine the issue under three areas a) strengthening creativity-related skills of the staff by improving organisational factors, b) creating favourable conditions for exchanging ideas and c) introducing concrete innovation opportunities to exploit.

2. Creativity enhancing SMEs and more in detail micro-enterprises which will focus on how employees can be even more creative and innovative than staff of larger companies.

3. Finally Knowledge Management for Innovation which will help SME owners/ decision makers and staff to identify key knowledge in their company and to identify tools to generate, to distribute and to keep knowledge.
