About the Enterprise Europe Network
The Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) helps businesses innovate and grow on an international scale. It is the world’s largest support network for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with international ambitions.
The Network is active worldwide. It brings together experts from member organisations that are renowned for their excellence in business support.
Member organisations include:
chambers of commerce and industry
regional development organisations
universities and research institutes
Individual businesses can’t become Network members, but they can enjoy the many services offered. See also the Enterprise Europe Network infographic (.pdf).
Teams of Network experts in each member organisation offer personalised services to businesses.
They know the local business environment and have contacts for business opportunities worldwide.
The Enterprise Europe Network can also offer a targeted approach aimed specifically at your business sector. Its groups of experts cover all key economic sectors, from healthcare, agri-food and intelligent energy to fashion and textile. In addition, the Network will help companies increase their resilience and support SMEs in their transition to more sustainable and digital business models.
For information and advice, find a local Network contact point in your region.

Funding of the Network
The European Commission launched the Enterprise Europe Network in 2008. It is funded through the Single Market Programme (SMP) and implemented by the European Commission's European Innovation Council and SMEs Executive Agency (EISMEA).
Network member organisations grouped in regional consortia are selected through calls for proposals.
A call for expressions of interest for international partners to join the Network on a self-financed basis is open until late 2022, with cut-off dates on 31 March 2022 and on 15 December 2022.
With BATARYASAN being a company that designs and manufactures battery-based technologies with hydrogen-based industries, a high level of funding is required to be sustainable.
