Also, it is envisaged that these infopoints provide advisory support on entrepreneurship development, sales, internationalization, marketing and logistics.

These professionals will manage these corners and they will deliver information to SMEs regarding their interests, doubts or requests on the specific topic. That way, SMEs, businessmen/women and entrepreneurs will have a physical transnational infopoints for the support in their internationalization, logistic issues and/or possibility to expand their markets. It is envisaged for this corner to be active for the entire duration of the Pilot.

The appointment could be held during fixed days and office hours, when the professionals will be physically in the INFOPOINT, or through Zoom/Skype meetings due to Covid-19 measures and in order to maximize their efficiency.
