The conference will help small companies to compete effectively in an increasingly globalized world, and to gain maximum benefit from existing and future funding programmes.
The high-level conference which is to take place in Dublin on 11-12 June 2013 under the auspices of the Irish EU presidency, will be an important opportunity to explain how small companies can compete effectively in an increasingly globalized world, and how they can gain maximum benefit from existing and future private and public support mechanisms.
Strategically held during the culmination of the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (FP7) and before the launch of its successor Horizon 2020, the EuroSME2013 conference is seizing the momentum for SMEs and targeting innovation.
The event will also provide the chance to make a difference – or help entrepreneurs to make a difference – and shape the EU Innovation Agenda.
In the current economic conditions, the main challenge for the EU is providing the conditions for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. Sustainable, long-term growth and job creation will be delivered best via SMEs that gain and sustain their competitive advantage through innovation.
The conference will bring together hundreds of entrepreneurs, policymakers, SME support organizations from the private and the public sector, and other stakeholders that will provide their energy and ideas on how to improve the EU eco-system for innovative enterprises.
