Details of partnerships

European Partnerships Innovative SMEs

The partnership covers a specific niche that other EU, national and regional interventions do not address - the cooperation of 2 or more international partners, with at least one research and innovation SME as a leader.

The proposed new initiative is to help innovative SMEs to grow and become embedded in global value chains and new markets. It would achieve this by supporting innovative SMEs in developing products, processes and services through funding market-led, cross-border, research and innovation collaborative projects and providing accompanying measures. It would enable global collaboration and the commercialising new knowledge.
