About Enterprise Europe Network

Enterprise Europe Network was launched in February 2008 by the Commission’s Directorate-General for Enterprise and Industry. It builds on the former Euro Info Centre (EIC) and Innovation Relay Centre (IRC) Networks, established in 1987 and 1995 respectively. Offering the combined services of these highly successful predecessors, and more, we are a true one-stop shop for small businesses. Enterprise Europe Network consists of more than 3,000 experienced staff in more than 60 countries, promoting competitiveness and innovation at a local level in Europe and beyond.

Our services are specifically designed for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) but are also available to all businesses, research centres and Universities across Europe. Whether you need information on EU legislation, help with technology transfer or finding a business partner, want to benefit from innovation networks in your region or need information on funding opportunities, Enterprise Europe Network is the place to start.
