Project description

Continuing support for SMEs on Canary Islands

Most companies on the Canary Islands are SMEs. Enhancing the innovation management capacity of these SMEs is a top priority, which has been carried out by the EU-funded projects E3Canarias 2015-2016 and 2017-2018. The EU-funded E3Canarias 2019 project will continue the activities carried out by the previous projects. Specifically, it will deliver service packages targeting the most innovative SMEs on the islands. It will also give support to the Canary Islands beneficiaries of the Horizon 2020 dedicated SME instrument, Fast Track to Innovation, Future and Emerging Technologies - Open programmes as key account management services.
