COSME Call 2016 - European Network for Early Warning and for Support to Enterprises and Second Starters COS-EarlyWarningEU-2016-4-01 Closed!


 The objective of this Call for Proposals is to create and fund a "European Network for Early Warning and for Support to Enterprises and Second Starters" which will be in charge of conceptualising, organising the development and implementing support services for companies and company-owners in difficulties and honest bankrupt entrepreneurs vying for a second start.

The initiative will focus on the establishment of a European Network that will provide early warning, prevention and quality support services to companies in difficulty in countries in which such systems do not exist or are only partly covered.


The main element of the project will be the creation of a network of committed experts across Europe working together and providing support services to the companies in distress.

All three actions must be included in the proposal:

  1. The establishment of the network and package of advisory and support services
  2. Identification of companies in distress
  3. Support activities to companies in distress and follow-up of their future development
