Enterprise Europe Network
The world’s largest network for internationalisation right on your doorstep
In 2008, the European Commission initiated the Enterprise Europe Network to support small and medium-sized enterprises in their innovation and internationalisation projects. Since then, the EEN at saaris has been part of this largest support network in the world, with around 6,000 employees in over 600 organisations, and can draw on the expertise of foreign chambers, associations, technology centres and innovation agencies.
We offer our services predominantly free of charge for Saarland customers.
Internationalisation and individual cooperation partner mediation
To be successful in new markets, you need efficient and, above all, suitable partners. For small and medium-sized enterprises, the search for this is associated with a great deal of effort. The EEN offers a range of tools that make finding the right partners much easier, as one of our main areas of work is to support the search for potential partners in the fields of business, technology and research in other European countries and worldwide.
Do you have any questions within the scope of your internationalisation project?
We can advise you on patents, utility models, trade marks, design rights and copyrights, European laws and directives, EU funding instruments (overview of possible funding instruments (including national and regional), initial information on how to apply and refer you to the right contacts, support in accessing other funding), the EU internal market and foreign markets, or we can refer you to an expert in our network.
