The project "Futurisme II" (2002-2003) was organised by UEAPME and the Academy Avignon (European SME Policy Think Tank) with financial support from the European Commission (European Social Fund). The project was based on the results of the "Futurisme I" project (2000-2001) on Social Dialogue in SMEs with a special focus on labour relations, enlargement and training.
The Futurisme II project on Adaptability and Employability in a modern and dynamic economy aimed to achieve three goals:
- Raising awareness on new developments in the Social Dialogue and on new issues, which have to be tackled in the Social Dialogue;
- Deepening the relations between the European, national, sectoral and regional levels of Social Dialogue for SMEs and improving the awareness of Trade Unions on the specific situation of small companies and their special needs;
- Widening the scope of Social Dialogue for SMEs by involving SME organisations which are not officially recognised Social Partners:
