The BBI JU encourages the participation of SMEs to ensure their full involvement in the programme.

Close synergies with other European Union policies in areas such as industrial competitiveness and SMEs, agriculture, energy and environment, and with the European Structural and Investment Funds or Rural Development related actions will be developed.
