Pilot Action host: RECOMMEND Lead Partner (Lower Austrian Regional Governmen, Austria)
Target: Development of a clear expert database for funded consultation in Lower Austria
The aim of this database is to provide an in-depth overview of external Lower Austrian consultants who can support private and public institutions with their measures in the area of eco-management and eco-innovation. The database supplies detailed information on the training, references and activities of the external consultants. This tool serves as the equivalent of a directory to help its target groups locate a suitable consultant close by, quickly and without a lengthy search, a consultant who is right for them and matches their issue profile. Additionally, this approach should help enhance the quality of registered consultants and foster networking amongst each other.
