The European Enterprise Europe Network, active in the regions of Bucharest – Ilfov and South Muntenia since 2008, continues and expands its activity during the period 2022-2025, through the project “Promoting SMEs through Enterprise Europe Network” (PROSME), financed under the Single Market Program.
The project assists enterprises in their transition to more economically, socially and environmentally sustainable businesses, while supporting digital innovation and increased resilience, so that SMEs become competitive on the European Single Market and global markets.
PROSME’s services provide the enterprises with a framework for adopting new business models, and include:
- advisory services on sustainability, innovation, digitalization or access to European funding programmes, including programmes for research and development and innovation;
- assistance in identifying European and international business partners or to develop projects;
- training and information activities;
- support for SMEs in expressing opinions under the European policy-making process.
New methods of service delivery emphasize mutual cooperation and complementarities between project partners, within local and regional ecosystems and with the host-structures.
A consortium of 14 organizations, with substantial experience in business support is implementing the project and Bucharest-Ilfov Regional Development Agency is the coordinator.
European dimension and added value remain the key features of PROSME’s activities.
