Making the internal market more effective, boosting SMEs competitiveness, supporting European standardisation and empowering consumers


The Single Market Programme focuses on strengthening the governance of the internal market, supporting the competitiveness of industry and in particular of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), promoting human, animal and plant health and animal welfare and establishing the framework for financing European statistics.

It will support the above-mentioned areas with a budget of € 4 208 million for the period of 2021-2027. In addition, € 2 000 million allocated under the InvestEU Fund, in particular through its Small and Medium-sized Enterprises Window, will significantly contribute to its objectives.
