Abstract

This is a brochure for the ERASME project which received funding under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). ERASME added a transnational dimension to the efforts of Europe's national government programmes to tackle the unique research challenges faced by Small and medium-sized enterprise (SME)s, namely the efforts to promote intensified cooperation between SMEs and research organisations. To promote optimal transnational solutions, ERASME adopted two kind of approaches; on the one hand its programmes concentrated on linking one or just a few SMEs with a single research organisation, whereas on the other hand emphasis was laid on building extensive networks involving numerous SMEs and a number of different research institutions. However, challenging cultural and organisational issues had to be addressed which are outlined in the document.
