The Secretariat is engaging with all our members to understand how TPOs can maximise their involvement in the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN). The secretariat organised an information session in February, and a survey collecting feedback is now online. Our secretariat is also organising bilateral meetings with members to understand possible barriers to entry into EEN, and the challenges and opportunities for TPOs to be part of EEN.
The aim is to develop recommendations to both DG GROW (lead on EEN) and to the members. The ambition is to empower TPOs within EEN so they might benefit from it, while influencing the European Commission to recognise the key role of TPOs and ensure their access to the network as full or associated members.
