The EER is a project that identifies and rewards EU regions which show an outstanding and innovative entrepreneurial policy strategy, irrespective of their size, wealth and competences. Since 2009, this prestigious award recognises local and regional authorities for their implementation of policies supporting SMEs aligned with the Small Business Act (SBA).
