EU SME Support

EU SME Support is a project funded by Vinnova and the Swedish Growth Agency. The goal is to help Swedish, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to seek funding from the EU framework program for research and innovation but also the international network Eureka, which aims to strengthen the competitiveness of European industry.

From Luleå in the north of Sweden to Malmö in the south - you can find EU SME Support throughout the country and we have broad industry expertise and extensive experience in both business coaching and EU applications. We provide independent expert advice and you get a contact person who guides you throughout the process.

We provide advice on how to sharpen your EU application, whether you are applying for the first time or have been rejected and want to apply again. You can also attend our events, trainings and workshops where you can develop your application together with others in the same situation. All our services are free of charge.

Many of us are also linked to the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN), an EU-funded project and business network that provides support and service to SMEs. The main purpose of the EEN is to provide support to SMEs' opportunities to reach new international markets. The network includes 600 organizations in 60 countries. The Growth Agency is the main financier for EEN in Sweden and also coordinates operations nationally.
