EEPA Compendium now available!

In 2021, the European Enterprise Promotion Awards (EEPA) celebrated its 15th edition and continued to award projects that demonstrate the pinnacle of innovation and entrepreneurship in Europe. Despite the continued influence of the global pandemic, with COVID-19 still having an impact on the SMEs and the European economy as a whole, EEPA made sure that the latest innovative enterprise concepts were showcased in the European arena. These innovative concepts have now been gathered in one place – the EEPA Compendium.

Every year the EEPA Compendium showcases all of the projects that were shortlisted in the competition, to celebrate their achievements, while at the same time providing some insight into the Awards process. This year is no different, and the Compendium contains a wealth of information on all of 2021’s shortlisted projects.

In total, there were 204 national projects in the 2021 edition of the competition, from which a shortlist of 47 projects was selected, representing the strongest ideas from across the EU and COSME countries. At the SME Assembly, six projects were awarded as winners in the six competition categories:

  1. Promoting the entrepreneurial spirit
  2. Investing in entrepreneurial skills
  3. Improving the business environment and supporting the digital transition
  4. Supporting the internationalisation of business
  5. Supporting the sustainable transition
  6. Responsible and inclusive entrepreneurship

In addition, there was also the Grand Jury Prize along with many interesting runners-up and two special mentions: you can find more information about all of these in the Compendium, where you can also learn more about each of our EEPA jury members as well as the EEPA judging process that goes on behind the scenes.

The Compendium also features feedback from last year’s winners about what winning the prize has meant to them and in addition information on the Grand Jury Prize winners from the last four years.
