The SME Instrument offers grants and support services to EU-based small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) for innovation projects that will help them grow and expand abroad. Coaching is provided by experienced business coaches selected through the Enterprise Europe Network. It targets mainly highly innovative SMEs with a clear commercial ambition and a potential for high growth and internationalisation.
