The Euro Info Centres

As information centres with a European outlook, the Euro Info Centres (EICs) are the preferred partners of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) who wish to make the most of opportunities offered by the European market. Organised in a network based in all Member States, their approach is pro-active and decentralised, which allows them to give pertinent answers to SMEs' queries.

The EIC network is a European Union initiative set up to encourage economic growth and business competitiveness. Its creation stems from the recognition that:

Their contribution to job creation, growth and competitivity has a significant impact on prosperity. Small and medium-sized businesses created 3 million jobs between 1988 and 1993. - SMEs encounter difficulties when exploiting opportunities offered by the Single Market - such as lack of information on European issues, differences between the laws of various Member States, and administrative constraints.
