Enterprise Europe Network (EEN)

EEN brings together 600 Network partner organisations, in more than 60 countries to help business and organisations.  EEN is funded by the European Commission and Innovate UK and provides a fully funded advice and support programme. EEN is a platform to form links to potential European and International stakeholders, partners and/or collaborators whether that be for funding, technology, knowledge transfer or to explore commercial and/or reciprocal opportunities. 

There is support available to organisations seeking advice on the competitive funding opportunities and assistance in identifying Research and Development (R&D) grants that businesses may be eligible for, in addition to providing  critique and feedback on funding applications prior to submission. When seeking  project partners for collaborative R&D funding bids, there is also assistance via EEN and this sometimes involves the UK's National Contact Points for specialist insight.

Programmes supported include Innovate UK and collaborative European opportunities such as Horizon 2020, including SME Instrument and Eurostars.
