The Call for Sustainability Partnerships for SMEs is now open!
The European Innovation Council and SMEs Executive Agency (EISMEA) has opened the call for proposals for Sustainability Partnerships for SMEs adopting more sustainable practices.
The goal of this call is to tackle the expertise of Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) to assist Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) in their transition to more sustainable business models. It aims at enhancing the collaboration between SMEs and NGOs/CSOs active in the same regions, while funding practical projects able to influence the environmental and/or social performance of SMEs.
This call builds on the mission of the Enterprise Europe Network and provides Network members with an additional tool to assist SMEs in their transition to more sustainable business models. Therefore, an active Network member will coordinate the projects or actions.
The projects will be implemented by consortia composed of interested SMEs, NGOs/CSOs and other relevant parties able to contribute to the implementation of the projects/actions.
Are you interested to build a new sustainability partnership? Apply via the EU Funding & Tenders Portal.
The deadline for submissions is 15 March 2022 17:00, Brussels time
