WISEs and COVID-19

ENSIE has been very active to support WISEs all over Europe since the beginning of the Coronavirus crisis. You’ll find here a summary of those actions. 

Updated analysis on WISEs and COVID-19

During summer and fall 2020, we updated our data on how the COVID-19 crisis impacted WISEs in Europe.

You’ll find in this publication the data from 9 countries from all over the EU and Moldova. It shows that overall, WISEs are very resilient and overcame the crisis. However, the support given to WISEs by the States varies from one country to another and often, no specific measures are foreseen for WISEs and it is difficult for them to access national and EU funds.
