Given the current economic situation and the financial crisis in many European countries, Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) have found internationalisation and exportation of their products as the main way out of this crisis. In this paper, we provide a decision support system that semantically aggregates information from many heterogeneous web resources and provides guidance to SMEs for their potential investments. The main contributions of this paper are the introduction of SME internationalisation indicators that can be considered for such decisions, as well as the novel decision support system for SME internationalisation based on inference over semantically integrated data from heterogeneous web resources. The system is evaluated by SME experts in realistic scenarios in the section of dairy products.
