Global partners for Yorkshire firms

Have your say

The Enterprise Europe Network, created by the European Commission, provides free support to Yorkshire and Humber companies wishing to make the most of the European marketplace.

The network can help develop your business in new markets, source or license new technologies and access EU funding. The initiative covers over 50 countries (the EU plus China, Brazil, US, Russia, etc) representing the largest business support network in the world. In partnership with The Yorkshire Post, Enterprise Europe is providing a regular list of opportunities for Yorkshire companies through this column.
