Every year at the SME Assembly delegates have the chance to watch the best projects from across Europe and COSME countries be awarded for their efforts and work in the areas of enterprise and entrepreneurship. This year the SME Assembly is proudly hosting not one but two awards ceremonies, the European Enterprise Promotion Awards  and the European Small and Mid-Cap Awards , where the most innovative projects in our Promoting Enterprise community are recognised.
The European Enterprise Promotion Awards – EEPA
The EEPA reward those who promote entrepreneurship and small business at the national, regional and local level through a variety of initiatives spanning six individual categories. Winning projects are chosen via a series of rounds including a national competition, a European competition to determine the shortlist and finally an awards ceremony where the prestigious EEPA jury reveals their top choices per category and their selection for the Grand Jury Prize. Find out more about the EEPA 2020, discover the projects competing on the shortlist  and don’t forget to join us  for the EEPA 2020 finals at the SME Assembly 2020.
The European Small and Mid-Cap Awards
This year the SME Assembly will also be hosting the finals of the European Small and Mid-Cap Awards, which promotes best practices and encourages more small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to access capital markets via IPOs. Running since 2013, the awards recognise SMEs across four different categories: International Star, Rising Star, Star of Innovation and Star of the year. Find out more about the projects shortlisted  for the 2020 finals and don’t forget to secure your place  at the ceremony to find out who the 2020 winners will be.
