Since 2006, KMU Campus (www.kmu-campus.org, in German only) has successfully organised one-day events supporting the knowledge transfer between companies and offering practice-oriented and subject-specific training / advanced training opportunities. These "Best Practice" workshops allow managers of SMEs to visit host companies and receive practical coaching and know-how that can immediately be implemented in their own firm. The initiative, or the events, are under the patronage of the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (seco) and the “Stiftung Produktive Schweiz”.
The events organised by KMU Campus are especially designed for owners and managers of big SMEs.
