Webinar – Revitalising SME’s through EU Grants and other support measures
July 31, 2020 @ 9:15 am - 11:30 am
Malta is currently benefiting from over 1 Billion Euro in direct EU funding, hailed as one of the largest economic injections in Malta since Independence. Major investments are currently taking place in key areas such as the environment, transport infrastructure, education and the competitiveness of the private sector.
In parallel Government is also offering measures to ‘support and re-energise businesses and the Maltese economy’.
This session aims to introduce attendees to these funding options and support measures available to local businesses as they seek to improve their market standing. These are even more relevant today as businesses are navigating through the challenges brought about by the COVID-19 reality.
The objective of this session is to increase awareness amongst MIA members about EU Grant Schemes and other support measures open to SMEs. During this session Ms Mizzi will discuss these, explaining the benefits of each and what businesses would be eligible for such aid.
This session will aim to discuss and answer the following questions:
- What are the funding options available for my business/client?
- How can I plan my upcoming investment in line with such grants?
- How can I use such grants to increase my competitiveness and profitability?
These questions will be explored in the context of various past successful projects funded through such schemes.
TOPICS ON THE AGENDA
- EU grant schemes
- EU grants for training
- Malta Enterprise Support Measures
- COVID-19 support measures
This session is relevant for all professionals, entrepreneurs, local business owners and anyone currently interested in taking their venture to the next level and wants to learn about what funding opportunities the EU and local entities are offering.
