The Small Business Act (SBA) promotes a comprehensive policy framework to ensure that European SMEs can thrive. E&I magazine’s main feature analyses progress made so far in implementing the SBA, while looking at how the recent SBA Review is intended to drive Europe’s economic engine further forward to respond to new challenges.
Issue 10 also investigates the importance of internationalisation to SMEs, by presenting a new portal, which offers a wealth of useful information on the protection of intellectual property rights. Other articles examine the single charger for mobile phones, a strategy to improve sustainable access to raw materials, the EU’s performance in the innovation stakes and initiatives to boost the competitiveness of the chemical industry.
