Postponed: Improve innovative SMEs access to finance: new SME Strategy and alternative financing models

In light of the current COVID-19 concerns in Brussels, we regret to inform you that this Working Group meeting will be postponed. We will communicate the new date as soon as possible.


Join us for the first Innovation and Investment Working Group meeting of the year.

The meeting will be the occasion to discuss the Working Group's meeting scope, with an enhanced focus on the SME component of regional innovation ecosystems: the Working Group Leaders will present the Annual Plan, welcoming suggestions and integrations from the WG members.

Following this internal exchange, the participants will have the privilege to learn more about the SME Strategy which will be announced at the beginning of March by the Von der Leyen Commission. A debate will then offer the opportunity to discover more about different types of financing models accessible to companies all across Europe.

Reminder: A call for a new I&I WG leader (available here) was published last week: for more information get in touch with ilaria.dauria@errin.eu and agnieszka.wieczorek@errin.eu by the 2nd March 2020.
