The existence of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) reflects a healthy economy as they contribute about 50% of GDP and generate 60-70% of employment. Their smaller size allows them to be flexible, specialize in specific markets and adapt to the rapid market changes, which is not common in larger enterprises.
Due to the SMEs' importance for the economy, there are plenty of funding programmes for them to scale up, internationalize, become competitive, and digitally transform.
EUcalls joins forces with our partners at Grants Office to bring you an online event titled The Funding Landscape for SMEs in the EU and the UK on November 9 2022, at 15.00 (CET). The speakers are grant authorities from the UK, Greece, and Cyprus to present you with their programmes and answer all your questions about SME funding.
