The European Commission is currently implementing a project ‘Fostering collaboration through mapping, analysing and interlinking of European Entrepreneurial Regions’. It pursues the development and implementation of collaborative action plans to support scale-ups and entrepreneurs according to thematic priorities. The EER Peer-to-peer exchange scheme is a mobility exchange program to foster the sharing of best practices, experience and knowledge among entrepreneurs from EER labelled regions.
The consortium in charge of the project has recently published a Call for Expression of Interest for entrepreneurs and business support organisations’ representatives who would like to take part in an European Entrepreneurial Region peer-to-peer exchange programme. It is set-up to help entrepreneurs benefit from an experience in a business support organisation from a different region, to connect with potential partners and with the aim of sharing knowledge or setting up collaborative projects. Business support organisation’s representatives from the EER regions will also be able to benefit from the programme by accompanying their entrepreneurs and therefore engage with their peers from another European region.
Deadline for applications is 28 February 2020. Only regions currently participating in the project are eligible to respond to the call.
