    The ASEM SMEs Eco-Innovation Center (ASEIC) and Ministry of SMEs and Start-ups (MSS) of the Republic of Korea in cooperation with LUXINNOVATION and Ministry of Economy in Luxembourg would like to cordially invite a country delegate to the 6th ASEM Working Group (WG) Seminar on SMEs Eco-Innovation Competence, which will be held on 11-12 September, 2018 in Luxembourg, Luxembourg. The Seminar is held to discuss on-going ASEM cooperative projects and development of new cooperation among ASEM member countries.

    In order to carry out our mandate of SMEs eco-innovation competence which is aimed at strengthening the common ground to support SMEs among participating countries toward sustainable growth, the Seminar had been endorsed at the 11th ASEM Summit in Mongolia.

    Following consecutive roundtable discussions and constant analyses of the needs and expectations of member countries throughout the prior WG Seminars, seven project ideas under three main topics were generated and had been endorsed at the 11th ASEM Summit in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia as one of ASEM activities for 2016-2018 as follows.

    1. Developing Training on Eco-Innovation for SMEs : On/off-line training program
    2. Eco-Innovation Advisory Services for SMEs Cooperation: online information of eco-innovation, business-to-business, and eco-innovation consulting services 
    3. Eco-Innovation Capacity Building for the Governments: Foresight of eco-innovation, green deal and global recognition of ETV. 

    These WG-driven projects has been piloted in 2017-2018 and will be discussed for the 6th Working Group Seminar and to review what we have done so far together and to generate new plans to be implemented in 2019-2020. 

    We expect the participation of a delegate from a member country interested in cooperation with other members in facilitating eco-innovation of SMEs in the context of ASEM. 

    A round trip flight ticket and accommodation will be provided to one country delegate per each member state who wants to participate in the working group and future cooperation.
