Promoting entrepreneurial expertise

The programme aims to support SMEs and members of the liberal professions in increasing their entrepreneurial expertise so that they can meet the many challenges of economic trends and the changes caused by demographic, digital and ecological transformation.

Grants towards offsetting the costs of consultancy measures are provided with the goal of increasing entrepreneurial competence, thereby increasing the prospects for success, performance and competitiveness, and the employment capacity and adaptability of SMEs.
