A number of bilateral projects under the EU4Business initiative have also supported BSO development in individual Eastern Partner countries:
- The EU4Business Network of Business Support Centres in Ukraine (2016-2020), implemented by the EBRD, has supported the creation of a network of 15 Business Support Centres (BSCs) across the country to support SMEs in accessing the right financing and know-how support for their business. The BSCs organise trainings workshops and trade events as well as providing advisory and other services to SMEs.
