The I-TEC pilot project is an initiative to encourage early stage investments in technologically innovative SMEs. The first phase, I-TEC 1, was launched by Commissioner Mrs. Cresson in July 1997 and closed in June 1998. I-TEC 2 has now taken over the relay. This information package describes the adapted pilot project I-TEC 2 and replaces all previous versions. It has been produced to enable venture capital operators from the European Union to participate in the I-TEC 2 pilot project.
