The development of and support given to Italian small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) is central to giving credibility to our national economic system. CRIET develops several observatories which monitor the potential difficulties and competitiveness factors of SMEs, professionals and various stakeholders within the region of Lombardy and the country as a whole. This activity has led to the annual production of research reports and articles presented at national and international conferences.

At the same time the monitoring bodies have made it possible to establish ties and relationships with the main actors in the area in order to take action to strongly support companies in addressing the challenges posed by the current competitive environment.

In particular, CRIET actively supports local businesses by providing a variety of services such as; access to credit, internationalization procedures and the generational transition of companies.
