EUDIS Coaching Services

EUDIS Coaching Services - In a nutshell

What is it?

To help SMEs boost their growth in the defence sector, the EU launched exclusive business coaching services for selected SME beneficiaries of the European Defence Fund (EDF). The services were created as part of the EU Defence Innovation Scheme (EUDIS), a set of instruments in the EDF to increase defence competitiveness and innovation.

The coaching services are open to selected SMEs under the EDF open calls for non-thematic research actions, non-thematic development actions and open disruptive technologies.

The type of assistance provided will depend on the needs of the applying SME. Topics covered via the coaching services include market readiness, investment readiness, access to finance, commercial due diligence, execution capacity, legal and IP advice as well as growth and internationalisation.
