Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are the backbone of the European economy. Supporting SMEs – both emerging and existing ones – is vital for the current and future health of the European economy. This is, of course, also true at the regional level; regions need to constantly support their SMEs in order to improve and/or retain their attractiveness as a place to live and do business.
