networks from different EU countries.

• Establishing a social media strategy with groups in LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and online

statements, speeches and keynotes on YouTube, and a set of proceedings and

recommended books.

• Establishing an effective team of national representatives (from each EU- country) growing

step by step into more countries of Europe.

• Establishing a European Qualification Framework for a pool of professions related to SPI and

management. This is supported by European certificates and examination systems.
