Small and Medium Sized Enterprises

18 March 2016

SMEs

Competitiveness of Enterprises & SMEs & Medium-sized Enterprises (COSME) has an EU-wide budget of €2.3 billion.

COSME supports the competitiveness, growth and sustainability of EU's enterprises, in particular SMEs, and promoting entrepreneurship.

To reach this, the programme eases SME's access to finance by providing loan guarantees and risk-capital, facilitates access to new markets inside and outside the EU and improves the framework conditions for businesses, e.g. by reducing the administrative burden on SMEs.
