The Berlin one-day workshop brought together 19 participants from five different countries with the aim of presenting the GreenEcoNet platform and discussing possibilities for European policy support for green SMEs.

Participants viewed a range of presentations from eight different speakers representing governmental agencies, industry associations, consultancies, and the GreenEcoNet project itself. A further collaborative "working group" session then allowed participants to discuss either the role of SME networking in going green or the barriers and needs faced by European SMEs in greening.
