The European Commission welcomes all citizens and organisations to contribute to the consultation regarding the SME definition. The SME definition as provided in Recommendation 2003/361/EC is the structural tool to identify enterprises that are confronted with market failures and particular challenges due to their size, and therefore are allowed to receive preferential treatment in public support. Contributions are particularly sought from national and regional authorities, enterprises, business associations or organisations, venture capital providers, research and academic institutions, and individual citizens.
In order to participate in the consultation, please fill the online questionnaire in the EU Survey tool. The questionnaire is available in 23 official EU languages and responses may be submitted in any of these.
