The workshop will provide a quick overview on the financial opportunities that are available for SMEs that are either interested or already involved in the green economy. It will also be an opportunity for businesses that already applied for these types of finance to share their experience - both positive and negative.
Questions to be covered include:
- What are the finance mechanisms for green SMEs operating in the European Union?
- What are the challenges for SMEs to apply for these innovative finance sources?
- What role can the GreenEcoNet platform play in supporting SMEs interested in these innovative finance mechanisms?
