Funding Innovation – Call for Participants

The Malta Business Bureau is now receiving applications for a 24-hour training programme on EU funds, focusing on the competitiveness of enterprises and SMEs (COSME)!

As part of Funding Innovation, MBB is offering businesses professional training on EU Direct Funds and Programmes. The training will consist of:

  • FREE Information Session in Valletta 4 September 2019
  • Webinar Session – Introduction to EU Funding Streams 23 October 2019
  • 3-day Workshop in Brussels by EU Funding Experts 28-30 October 2019

The first training programme will focus on the competitiveness of enterprises and SMEs, i.e. the EU COSME Funding Programme.

COSME is the EU funding programme which seeks to strengthen the competitiveness and sustainability of enterprises, to encourage an entrepreneurial culture and to promote the creation and growth of SMEs. COSME supports enterprises in better access to finance; internationalisation and access to markets; improved business conditions; and entrepreneurship.
