What can Enterprise Europe Network do for my company?
The Enterprise Europe Network can help you with developing business activities or technological cooperation, provide advice on support for innovative business and how to access risk finance. It can also explain the opportunities available from EU programmes and funding. All services are offered by each network partner as a one stop shop service for companies.
Can the network help with business and technology cooperation with companies from other European countries or outside the EU?
Network partners regularly organise transnational missions and brokerage events for local SMEs. They can pre-arrange meetings and generally ease the process of business and technology cooperation. The network may support deals that involve companies located outside the EU. However, the vast majority of activities take place within the network's partner countries in the EU.
Is European funding available through the network?
The network can provide assistance and advice to enterprises seeking help in looking for debt and risk capital, participating in the various EU funded programmes, particularly those that target SMEs, but does not provide finance directly to companies. The network can also help businesses to exploit the results which stem from European RTD projects.
Can I get assistance for marketing and commercial activities?
The network supports the marketing of a business and/or technology or know-how by helping SMEs develop transnational activities and technology cooperation. Network partners do not assist with the selling of products.
Can you help me apply for relevant tenders, programmes and draft a project proposal or find a suitable business partner for a project /tender?
The network can provide comprehensive information and personalised advice to help companies apply for funding and calls for tenders successfully. Additionally the network's detailed database and powerful search engine helps SMEs and business actors identify suitable partners all over Europe.
