We’re excited to share that the IDEALIST project, a pioneering initiative under the Horizon Europe framework, has officially taken off! This groundbreaking project is set to revolutionize the way small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in three critical industrial sectors – Energy-intensive industries, Aerospace and Defence, and Mobility, Transport & Automotive – engage with and adapt to global changes.

Funded through the “RESILIENT VALUE CHAINS 2023” call, IDEALIST is committed to empowering SMEs to shift from being mere spectators to becoming influential actors in the face of worldwide shifts and challenges.

The project’s journey began with a vibrant kickoff meeting in the dynamic city of Saint-√Čtienne, hosted by CIMES. This initial gathering brought together the project’s partners, marking the beginning of a collaborative effort aimed at fostering innovation and resilience among Europe’s SMEs.

As we embark on this exciting venture, the main goal of IDEALIST is clear: to transform SMEs into proactive participants in global changes, ensuring they are not only prepared for the future but are also instrumental in shaping it. Stay tuned for more updates as we progress in our mission to support SMEs across Europe.
