EEN and European projects
Extensive network active at European level
The Chamber of Commerce of Bozen is active in South Tyrol as well as across borders on a supra-regional and European level for local businesses. In order to guarantee a longterm positive economic development of South Tyrol, it is important to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the European internal market and the support measures provided by the European Union.
The EU support instruments for small and medium-sized enterprises are included in the COSME programme, under whose umbrella the EEN - Enterprise Europe Network and the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs project are located. The Bozen Chamber of Commerce is the contact point and sponsor.
In addition the Chamber of Commerce makes use of the Eurochambers network and the partnership with Chambers of Commerce and Industry of the Euregio South Tyrol/Tyrol/Trentino, in order to represent the interests of South Tyrolean companies at European level.
