Enterprise Europe Network is the largest information and consultancy network in Europe.[citation needed]. The aim of the network is to help small business to make the most of the European marketplace. Enterprise Europe Network is a focal point network consisting of 600 organizations - chambers of commerce, regional development agencies, university technology centers, where about 4000 professionals are working in over 40 countries worldwide. Enterprise Europe Network Staff assist small business in sourcing new business & technology partners in Europe and advise them on accessing EU Funding.[1] In France, the EEN is hosted by the World Trade Center of Grenoble.

Background[edit]

Enterprise Europe Network was launched on 7 February 2008 by former EU Commissioner Günter Verheugen.[2] The Enterprise Europe Network combines the previous Euro Info Centres and the Innovation Relay Centres. The Network is partially funded through the EU's Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP), in cooperation with institutions at national and regional levels.

Comprising over 4000 innovation and business advisors in over 600 teams across Europe and beyond spanning 49 countries, the Network forms the world’s largest business and innovation support network.[3]
