Webinar: Developing Industrial Resilience in the face of COVID-19 26-6-20

The Southern Regional Assembly are stakeholders on the Interreg Europe FOUNDATION project on which Cork Institute of Technology, through the V-LINC Research group are lead partner.  This project was originally designed to explore how local and regional economies might mitigate against the loss of a major employer (were a large enterprise to close in a region). However, like everyone else in the midst of the Covid-19 crisis the focus of the project has shifted towards mitigation against the impact of the virus on business, and regional competitiveness.

As part of the project Lead Partner CIT are hosting a webinar ‘Policy Support for Industrial Resilience’ taking place on June 26th  at 9am GMT. This webinar will showcase examples of good practices which are being implemented and are working in partner regions across the EU in getting business re-opening and supporting those who have lost their jobs.

The full agenda with speakers and topics can be found here on the FOUNDATION website.
