Final Report - SCRATCH (Services for Collaborative Aeronautical Technical research)

Project ID: 36267
Funded under: FP6-AEROSPACE


Since early 1999, aeronautical small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) beneficiate from the free support of the SCRATCH methodology through successive stimulation actions funded by the EC. Since then, 5 000 SMEs have been directly contacted, 450 have been audited and 160 research-expressed interests have been collected. SCRATCH has serviced 64 SME proposals submitted to the Fifth and Sixth Framework Programme (FP5 and FP6) aeronautics calls, out of which 28 have led to funded projects, demonstrating the efficiency of the SCRATCH approach to the benefit of SMEs technological acquisition in aeronautics.

The brief final report covers the aims and outcomes of the project which notes that an important support for awareness on the project as a whole came from the website scoring at in average around 60 different visitors per open day during the project duration. The web is still active and contributes greatly to the project dissemination effort.
