Open call for proposals for Enterprise Europe Network for 2021 and beyond
The European Innovation Council and SME Executive Agency (EISMEA) opened the call for proposals to setup Enterprise Europe Network after 2022. The call is following the adoption of the Single Marker Programme (SMP).
The Network was launched in 2008 and since then played an important role in facilitating the access of European SMEs to the Single Market and third country markets. It is also providing growth-oriented, integrated business and innovation support services to help them compete.
The European Commission is looking for proposals for the next Network, as the current one is due to expire at the end of 2021, at first for the period from 1 January 2022 to 30 June 2025. The Network will be funded under the new Single Market Programme (SMP) which succeeds the COSME Programme.
The available budget of the call amounts to EUR 164,5 million and it is expected to contribute to the SMP objectives, improving the competitiveness and sustainability of SMEs in Europe and promoting entrepreneurship.
The deadline for submission of proposals is 11 August 2021 17:00 (Brussels time).
