Enterprise Europe Network

Enterprise Europe Network

The Enterprise Europe Network is an international network made up of more than 600 business support organizations, where Chambers of Commerce, Business Development Agencies, Technology Centers and Universities participate. It is the world’s largest support network for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with international ambitions. 

The network is present in more than 60 countries, including the 27 Member States of the European Union and other associated countries. The European Commission launched the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) in 2008. The EEN Network is co-financed by the European Single Market (SMP) programme.

The goal of EEN is to help European SMEs to develop their innovative potential and grow internationally. In this way, it offers SMEs information and advice in relation to policies and business opportunities in EU and third countries, as well as assistance in technology transfer processes and access to European funding, research and development programs and innovation.
