Improving access to markets for SMEs: European Entrepreneurial Regions experience  

Internationalization is a key way for SMEs to innovate and grow in an increasingly global market and the EU needs to provide a toolbox to help SMEs integrate into global value chains. The workshop will be used to identify the opportunities and challenges that European SMEs face with regard to internationalisation both within the Single Market and globally, and will discuss what good practices exist at regional and local level that can be adapted by other EU territories and/or mainstreamed across the EU. Representatives of the EU institutions will provide an overview of the EU measures and tools available to support SMEs access to markets (i.e. the new COSME programme and initiatives supporting clusters).
