Overview of the Workshop

This workshop will present an overview of SME Funding and will provide practical tips for companies or research organisations planning to submit a proposal to the EC. The funding is awarded to SME companies or SME Associations in the EU to enable them to outsource research to Universities or Research Institutes. This will enable SMEs to extend their networks, better exploit research results, acquire technological know-how and IP, and bridge the gap between research and innovation.

Personnel from SMEs: e.g. owners, managers, accountants, engineers, designers, new product developers, R&D teams, etc. Personnel from Research Institutes: e.g. scientists, research leaders, research managers, administrators, or technology transfer managers.
