Get Gune initiative was launched on 2009 with the aim of energize collaborative projects to facilitate and stimulate training and learning processes in local SMEs. The different forums composing the Cooperation Network have defined different action lines:
The close productive relation that local big companies and SMEs have developed during years is considered an opportunity for the development of local companies’ capacities. In that sense, we are working on the identification of productive and value added necessities in those big and local companies (denominated as locomotive companies). The common challenge that those projects present refer to the qualitative step that supplier SMEs must face nowadays. The integration of product engineering is considered a condition to be able of add value to their actual activity and diversify their work to develop an own product. Advancing from the analysis of those necessities, the collaboration between companies and other agents (technological centers, universities, etc.) facilitates learning for that diversification and specialization.
We are also working to facilitate the internationalization of local industrial activity. In that case, the collaborative base results a crucial condition, moreover if we take into account that we are working on SMEs’ field. For the development of actions in that theme, we collaborate with Chamber of Commerce of Gipuzkoa and other experts.
In this third action line that will be developed in a medium/large period, we pretend to facilitate a setting to provide no available technologies in the actual industrial activity of Goierri. Considering that, we will focus on the creation of new business opportunities for SMEs. In that sense, the objective is to analyze those specific technologies that because of their high technical and technological requirements are imported from outside. Moreover, we complement this analysis with the study of emerging sectors to be able of glimpse possible development ways in the actual local activity.
