General description of the project:

The project recognizes that small businesses play a vital and fundamental role in job creation and the growth of the economy, therefore by presenting international opportunities through the partnership, the project will have a direct impact in supporting the objective of the Europe 2020 Strategy.

The project directly contributes to the decrease in the unemployment rate by supporting self-employment through the creation of new businesses in line with EU policies and present priorities.

The partnership composition creates a strong base for the promotion of a harmonised successful cooperation by comprising economies/countries that complete and complement each other. At the same time further inputs come out from the economic crisis that characterised European economy in recent years.
