Showing first results obtained from literature review and a survey among Member State officials, Dr. Martin Hirschnitz-Garbers introduced interesting examples from the application of selected support measures for improving business resource efficiency in different Member States. After concluding with preliminary lessons learnt on the diversity of approaches applied in the EU-28, there was brief time for questions from the more than 50 Member State experts, Commission service experts, civil society organisation representatives and consultants.
