Monday, 19.10.2020 - Tuesday, 20.10.2020

This virtual event will take place over two days and will be open to all Network partners.

On the first day, Monday 19th October, we will start with the opening plenary and two award ceremonies: the Good Practice Awards and the Resilience Award.

-     the “Good Practice Awards”, this year we are introducing two brand-new award categories: “Client Services” and “Network Operations”. The “Client Services” award will highlight the services provided to Network clients like e.g. Sustainability, Digitalisation, Market Access, Access to Finance, Innovation. The “Network Operations” award will focus on the internal functioning of the Network, and notably on the main topics and concepts of the Vision such as the client journey, the hub-and-spoke model, the Network effect and capacity building, and IT tools.

-     the "Resilience Award", a one-time special award honouring success stories of companies who have benefited from the Network’s support and bounced back from challenges during the COVID-19 crisis.

Throughout the day there will be seven plenary sessions giving an overview of key topics for the Network (please look at the agenda for the details). 

The second day, Tuesday 20th October, will include participatory workshops in the morning, and bilateral meetings in the afternoon.

The workshops will cover six different topics and will run by two in parallel as you can see in the programme overview. More details about the format and content of these sessions will be available at the beginning of September. 

In the context of the current COVID-19 crisis, we need to adapt and do things differently. Therefore, we give the opportunity to the participants to follow presentations via web-streaming and we will use online platforms like Zoom to facilitate panel discussions between inspiring speakers and Network experts.

For more information, please consult the circular note that was published on 10/09/2020.

As there are limited places for the workshops on 20/10/2020, we encourage participants to register as soon as possible

 The EEN Team is looking forward to welcoming you on-line.
