MSMEs in the Mediterranean region face important challenges in terms of sustainability, capacity to innovate, competitiveness and internationalization. These challenges call for new solutions to maintain their existence and to enhance growth. Greening the economy, developing natural assets, and enhancing innovation and creativity can provide economic, knowledge-based and environmental benefits in the Mediterranean region. INVESTMED is a co-funded project under the ENI CBC MED Programme that aims at addressing both economic and environmental challenges, supporting new, sustainable business opportunities for young people and women in Egypt, Lebanon and Tunisia. The European Institute of the Mediterranean is part of the INVESTMED project.
