Technical Assistance for Enhancing Coordination and Promotion of the COSME Programme and Capacity Building for SME Support Infrastructure
The Project “Technical Assistance for Enhancing Coordination and Promotion of the COSME Programme and Capacity Building for SME Support Infrastructure” will support our efforts to maximise Turkey’s participation and contribution to the Programme by maintaining its effective management and coordination of the COSME Programme.
Maximising the benefit to be achieved from the COSME Programme, requires the maximum participation to all current and potential beneficiaries to the open Calls of the Programme.
The Project will:
- Increase SMEs and intermediary organisations’ knowledge about COSME; and
- Enhance the coordination capacity within Turkey for effective participation in the Programme, and in the Small Business Act framework.
It is anticipated that the above will be accomplished through the achievement of the following results:
- Institutional capacity of KOSGEB in coordinating the COSME Programme was increased;
- Current and potential COSME beneficiaries in Turkey were supported;
- Publicity of COSME in Turkey was increased.
The Project has been designed with three main areas of activity and relevant sub activities as follows.
