Call for proposals - "Enterprise Europe Network: Growth-oriented business support services improving competitiveness and access to markets for EU enterprises" COS-WP2014-2-01 Closed!


The Network aims to contribute to the objectives of the COSME programme by facilitating access to European and international markets for European SMEs and by providing growth-oriented, integrated business and innovation support services that help strengthen the competitiveness and sustainability of European enterprises. The Network will primarily address European SMEs that seek to exploit new opportunities in the Single Market, but also in third countries.
The Network will foster the development of internationally competitive companies and will stimulate the innovation capacities of European SMEs. It will promote EU policies and programmes and provide a link between SMEs and EU policy making. Finally it will ensure the visibility, recognition and local awareness of its activities.
The Network will therefore help to improve the environment for entrepreneurial activities and promote entrepreneurial culture in the European Union.
