The Enterprise Europe Network is a European Union initiative aimed at providing business and innovation support to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). To date, the Enterprise Europe Network remains the world's largest business and innovation support network and currently consists of 600 partner organisations located in 63 countries. More than 4500 internationalisation experts and technology transfer practitioners offer a wide range of business and innovation support services to enterprises. The members of the Enterprise Europe Network are chambers of commerce, regional development organisations, SME organisations, research institutes, universities, technology centres and innovation centres. The Republican Centre for Technology Transfer is a member of the Enterprise Europe Network since March 15, 2015.
The "Performance Report 2013-2014 Business Cooperation Centres of the Enterprise Europe Network" provides an overview on the activities of the Enterprise Europe Network partners located outside the European Union, the so-called Business Cooperation Centres, in the contractual period 2013-14 (i.e. 1 January 2013 - 31 December 2014). Business Cooperation Centres were assessed on their capacity to facilitate business cooperation, technology transfer and research collaboration between European companies and enterprises in third countries, e.g. via:
- the organisation of brokerage events (b2b meetings);
- company missions;
- use of the Network's Partnership Opportunities Database (POD).
