EISMEA, the European Innovation Council and SME Executive Agency, has issued a new call for proposals under Phase IV of the European SME Center in China.
The European SME Center in China supports SMEs wishing to enter or expand their business in China by providing:
- General business and legal support services;
- New support services that reflect the needs of SMEs in the post COVID-19 pandemic, new EU policy priorities, and the state of EU-China economic relations.
The call is open to legal entities, established in one of the eligible countries, that are business support organizations from EU Member States and COSME SMP Associated Countries or entities representing groups of businesses, including SMEs, and/or the economic interests of businesses from EU or COSME SMP Associated Countries that offer non-individualized services for the promotion of trade and investment between Europe and China.
Proposals must be submitted by a consortium of at least four applicants, including at least two from different EU member states and at least two established in China.
The total budget is 2,400,000 euros and it is possible to apply until November 24, 2021.
The Malta Business Agency team offers support for the search of subjects with which to join in consortium, to develop expansion projects in the Chinese market, and to submit the application for funding of the EISMEA call. Request more information or a consultation by filling out the form below.
