This report presents the VALUE programme and three other European Commission initiatives: Seed Capital, Eurotech Capital and SPRINT. The Commission, through R&D programmes, helps to fund projects that are not yet competitive. It goes on to help the firms to achieve concrete benefits in the marketplace from the results obtained, and also endeavours to ease access to risk capital for firms seeking to consolidate their equity base. It achieves this through a range of initiatives: Seed Capital - start-up finance for firms; Eurotech Capital - risk capital for projects involving advanced technology; and SPRINT - easing the acquisition of new technology, making European technology more competitive and bringing firms engaged in innovative projects into contact with potential investors.
