Launched in February 2008 by the European Commission the Enterprise Europe Network combines and builds on the former Innovation Relay Centres and Euro Info Centers with the aim to offer an integrated business and innovation support to Small and Medium-sized Enterprises SMEs. 

The network brings together 600 partner organisations in more than 60 countries promoting competitiveness and innovation in  Europe and beyond and offers a “one-stop shop” to provide access to all information you need to develop your business and find the right business partners. 


More concretely, what we can do for you:

  • Providing information and practical advice on market opportunities, European legislation and policies relevant to a company or sector
  • Helping SMEs to find suitable business partners and build technology partnerships
  • Developing the research and innovation capacities of SMEs by helping to create synergies with other actors and foster technological cooperation by holding brokerage events
  • Giving access to information on EU projects and funding to ensure SMEs are aware of the possibilities available.
