[NEW] TMA contribute to research on SMEs in European Regions and Cities commissioned by the ESPON 2020 Cooperation Programme

Small and medium sized enterprises make up the backbone of the European economy, and consequently it is a key area of policy focus for the ESPON 2020 Programme which aims to promote and foster a European territorial dimension in development and cooperation by providing evidence, knowledge transfer and policy learning to public authorities and other policy actors at all levels. The main objective of the study was to map and analyse the territorial patterns and performance of SMEs in Europe, and to propose territorial development strategies that can be considered in different regions and cities to further strengthen the development and sustainability of SMEs.

The research project was undertaken by a consortium led by ÖIR (Austrian Institute for Regional Studies and Spatial Planning) along with KMU Forschung Austria (Austrian Institute for SME Research), Spatial Foresight (Luxembourg), VVA Europe (UK), the Oxford Group (Denmark) and the Centre for European and Local Studies (Poland). TMA were contracted by the consortium to prepare, compile and analyse the relevant regional SME data for Ireland.

ESPON has published the research report which can be accessed here: https://www.espon.eu/sme
