Call for proposals - Seminars on the rapid and efficient enforcement of outstanding claims by small and medium-sized undertakings operating across borders 18/G/ENT/IMA/11/6073 Closed!


This call for proposals is part of a Pilot Project which intends to support SMEs that operate across borders in the enforcement of outstanding claims. The Pilot Project aims:

  1. to help SMEs to optimise their business procedures by improving information access and dissemination in the area of claims management instruments and options.

These actions consist of the organisation of seminars throughout Europe, e.g. via the networks of chambers of commerce and industry or other non-profit facilities engaged in business promotion.

  • Credit management in practice for cross-border transactions within the EU
  • Legal action for the enforcement of outstanding claims in intra-EU trade
