The Enterprise Research Centre (ERC) was established in February 2013 to answer one central question ‘What drives SME Growth?’

Our mission is to become a focal point internationally for research, knowledge and expertise on SME growth and entrepreneurship. ERC brings the evidence base on SMEs and enterprise together, drives out new research insights and works with policy makers and practitioners to ensure research shapes better policies and practices to help SMEs to grow.
