Europa Innovación enables SME access to European funding

Statistics show that only seven percent of SME in Europe have requested public funds.  Principally, the reasons behind this low level of participation are: the lack of innovation and the complexity that characterizes the financing programmes launched by the EU.

The labour of Europa Innovación Euroconsulting (EIE), gives effect to the pairing of European funding/SME. EIE defends and demonstrates that Europe is not just for giants, but the ideal mean for economic growth and innovation of SME.

Its client portfolio includes multiple success cases, featuring by small companies which have benefited from European funding, by successfully participating in the execution of programmes such as LIFE, Eurostars and COSME.

To facilitate small businesses’ access to European finance, Europa Innovación participates at many important events, conferences and congresses   to disseminate on the opportunities and resources offered by European Union.

Moreover, the work of Europa Innovación goes beyond the purely informative task, with extensive experience in redaction and technical and financial management of projects. Legal and administrative requirements of the European programmes cease to be a problem for SME thanks to the support provided by EIE in this area.

Countless contacts with social and cultural collectives, economic agents and organizations, through challenges and surveys, precede this project presentation.

All this previous work has been reflected on the Local Action Plan, a document from what the Consistory has intensely worked, together with Europa Innovación, during last months, to set the proposal, obtaining, as a result of it, “Calp Ciudad Sostenible”, an ambitious Project to reach a sustainable, inclusive and modern Council.

The strategy includes different lines of intervention, grouped together in strategic aims, such as improving the access, use and quality of Information and Communication Tecnologies; protecting the environment and efficiency of resources; betting on a low carbon economy and promoting social inclusion and poverty reduction.
