Please find below a piece of information on the publication of a recent call for Expressions of Interest 'Business Cooperation Centres' in third countries for the Enterprise Europe Network (2015/2020).

This call addresses leading business and innovation support providers in third countries other than those participating in the Programme for the Competitiveness of Enterprises and Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (COSME). The objective is to establish 'Business Cooperation Centres' for the Enterprise Europe Network in international markets in order to form a unique international network of excellence. It should be noted that there are no EU funds available under this call. Business and innovation support providers in third countries are therefore invited to apply on the basis of mutual interest.

All information on the call, including the terms of reference as well as the model cooperation agreement to be signed with EASME are available on this webpage!
