Brussels, 25 February 2002
A conference aiming to provide a global focus for those involved in innovation and knowledge exchange will take place in Birmingham, UK on 10 to 12 July.

In addition to parallel sessions, participants will also have the opportunity to take part in extended workshops focusing on establishing small firms as global players, making the most of e-business and sustainability: translating the message for small firms.
