ARC project assume to conduct 32 onsite consultations to be able to provide direct support to needy SMEs (16 in Croatia and 16 in Ireland ). Thanks to conducting onsite consultations with SMEs, DPAs will be able to help SMEs in implementing GDPR through direct consultations.
During these consultations, DPAs will be able to help SMEs in implementing GDPR by providing advice to specific issues the SMEs face. We will also provide general educational sessions on GDPR obligations and compliance. A follow-up survey at the end of the project in order to verify the effectiveness of activities will be carried out under the project.
Target cities are all major cities in Croatia and as follows in Croatia: Zagreb, Velika Gorica, Osijek Varaždin, Rijeka, Zadar, Split, Pula, Dubrovnik, Karlovac, Slavonski Brod. Ireland will follow a similar schedule to that of Croatia, with final dates to be agreed with the local Chambers of Commerce. In recognition that SME very often do not have the time available to travel to the capital, the Irish DPC anticipates that these consultations will be regionalized throught the Republic, to encompass the towns/cities of: Dundalk; Navan, Carrick-on-Shannon; Letterkenny; Sligo; Castlebar; Galway; Limerick; Killarney; Waterford, Tipperary; Kilkenny; Athlone; Cork and Dublin.
