Research carried out in different European and national projects shows that e-learning is used still mainly in big companies while most SMEs have not sufficient know ledge and resources to develop and implement sustainable training strategies, based on new media and knowledge management for their own organisation despite their dire need to innovate. This paper presents the activities of the EU project SIMPEL (SIMPEL stands for SME: Improv ing Practice in e-learning) to involve SMEs and e-learning experts in a community of practice to share knowledge and to develop participative training strategies based on e learning 2.0.
