Overview of the main EU funding opportunities for SMEs

The European Union provides support to European small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). This is available in different forms such as grants, loans and, in some cases, guarantees.

Support is available either directly or through programmes managed at national or regional level, such as the Structural Funds.

SMEs can also benefit from a series of non-financial assistance measures in the form of programmes and business support services.

A new guide aims to present the European programmes available to SMEs and contains brief information as well as the main web sites for each programme.
