GRANDIS is designed to boost the growth and competitiveness of female-led SMEs by disseminating knowledge, developing gender-inclusive policies, and providing robust support to regional and national authorities. This initiative aligns with the European Union’s ambitious goals towards a climate-neutral economy and is backed by a comprehensive and inclusive approach.
