Intellectual outputs
  1. IO1 – <IR> Framework for SMEs. The starting point of this project is to get acquainted with and collate the provisions of existing non-financial reporting frameworks for SMEs, together with existing practical experiences with <IR> in the Member States represented in the consortium. After having consolidated the “six capital” approach, the consortium set out the objective to devise a reference framework for <IR> designed in such a way to allow easy adoption by SMEs and avoid overburdening their management.
  2. IO2 – <IR> Guide for SMEs. On the basis of the <IR> Framework, a practical handbook on how to measure and communicate SME performance in an integrated perspective will be developed. The handbook will provide operational guidance on how to keep track of value creation in such a way to satisfy the information needs of both internal decision-makers (SME owners and managers) and external stakeholders (funding agencies, customers, suppliers, unions, regulators, etc.).
  3. IO3 – <IR> Curriculum for SMEs. To help understand the concepts and use the tools featured in the Guide, the consortium will test and make available a set of learning units on how to measure and communicate value creation in the specific context of SMEs. Taking into account the time constraints of intended beneficiaries, a mixture of interactive workshops, online contents and work-based units will be used to make learning more attractive and easily accessible.

On top of these deliverables, an overarching medium-term objective is to introduce integrated thinking among European SMEs. This objective makes dissemination activities of outstanding importance. The dissemination capabilities of partners and associated partners are a token of the success of this medium-term objective, a result in itself of the INTEREST project.
