Enterprise Europe Network
Launched in 2008 by the European Commission, the Enterprise Europe Network offers concrete and effective solutions to entrepreneurs and companies in 50 countries. The network combines and builds on the former Innovation Relay Centres and Euro Info Centres (established in 1995 and 1987 respectively). The new integrated Network offers a “one-stop shop” to meet all the information needs of SMEs and companies in Europe.
Instruments include business partner search within technology and business cooperation databases and fast access to information on funding opportunities, individual on-site visits to companies to assess their needs and a broad range of promotion and information material. Representatives of the Network can also help businesses understand EU law, how it applies to their business and how to make the most the internal market and EU programs.
The Enterprise Europe Network fully exploits the synergies between all support services and helpdesks aimed at European businesses. The “one-stop shop” service is accompanied by a “no wrong door” policy: an entrepreneur or business actor can enter the Network through any contact point, and will then be assisted and personally directed to the relevant service or organization.
The consortia IST-Businnova, also called EEN-Istanbul is the EEN partner serving in Istanbul and Thrace region. EEN-Istanbul consists of four partners with different expertises.
