For Immediate release




Opportunity Wales acknowledged by European Commission



Opportunity Wales, the eCommerce support initiative, has been selected by the European Commission to be a featured case study on its Regional Policy Web site. The initiative has been included as one of only 12 case studies from across Europe that have been acknowledged as providing best practice amongst the projects that provide Applications and Services for SME’s.


Being selected as one of the Information Society’s case studies means that other projects across Europe can learn from the experiences of Opportunity Wales, that over the last 7 years have seen more than 12,000 Welsh small and medium sized businesses in the Objective 1 and 2 areas of Walesreceive expert, impartial eCommerce advice and support.


Being selected as a best practice case study by the European Commission is a huge accolade for Opportunity Wales and acknowledges that the work of the project, including it’s innovative CRM based business support model, is worthy of the consideration and even adoption by other European projects.


The case study itself provides a comprehensive overview of how the Opportunity Wales programme was developed, implemented and managed and highlights the key areas of innovation that helped the initiative to be selected as a best practice case study.
