8. National and EU resources and funding for SMEs

Overview
Curriculum

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are the backbone of Europe's economy. SMEs bring innovative solutions to challenges like climate change, resource efficiency and social cohesion and help spread this innovation throughout Europe’s regions. They are therefore central to the EU’s twin transitions to a sustainable and digital economy. They are essential to Europe’s competitiveness and prosperity, industrial ecosystems, economic and technological sovereignty, and resilience to external shocks. 

National and EU resources and funding for SMEs can be a power tool for accelerating the Green Transition. It is therefore crucial to get to know the national and EU funding available for SMEs.
