Services for SMEs
This theme is defined to include services that facilitate the participation of SMEs in the e-economy.
The primary objective is to increase the competitiveness of SMEs by their use of e-services. In this context these are defined to include access to government services; access to eBusiness solutions; and to new forms of business and commerce from which they may otherwise be excluded because of their size.
The priorities are to support SMEs in the adoption and use of e-applications; to enhance their e-skills; to foster public-private partnerships, including those established with a view to address security issues; and to facilitate the provision of cross-border e-services targeted for SMEs.
