Organised jointly by the European Commission and the country holding the presidency of the Council of the EU, the SME Assembly is an annual 2.5-day event presenting different approaches to promoting SME entrepreneurship. This meeting is linked to the small business act (SBA) initiative that sets the framework for the EU’s policy with regard to SMEs. As the Assembly marks the main event of the European SME week, the European Enterprise Promotion Awards (EEPA) will be presented in its margins.
