The aim of this call is to establish the Enterprise Europe Network for the period from 2015-2020.
The Network will 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.
At the same time, the Network can help achieve SME-related objectives of other EU programmes like Horizon 2020 and is encouraged to contribute to the development of a stronger SME support system in the regions of the European Union.
