Event Description:


This kick-off meeting addresses staff of associate members of the Enterprise Europe Network. The Executive Agency for Small and Medium Enterprises (EASME) intends to present how the Enterprise Europe Network works. The focus will be on the IT & communication tools and how associate members can “plug into” the Network, i.e. how they can offer services to European Network partners (and what's in it for them in return).

A representative from the South-East Asia Helpdesk will attend and have a number of guides and factsheets available for participants.
