European Innovation Council and SMEs Executive Agency (EISMEA)


From ideas to global markets: Innovation made in Europe


Our mission is to provide high quality support to European innovators, researchers, businesses and consumers. We aim to reinforce the European Union’s position as a global leader in Research and Innovation, strengthen its Single Market, open up opportunities for SMEs and maintain high standards of protection for its citizens towards a more competitive, digital, green and inclusive EU.

Established on 1 April 2021, EISMEA groups together in one agency all the activities of the European Innovation Council (EIC) and the programmes related to small and medium-sized enterprises.
