Abstract

This report which is based on a the study conducted by the EIM Business & Policy Research on behalf of the Joint Research Centre Institute for Prospective Technological Studies, is a contribution to the development of the European Environmental Technologies Action Plan, ETAP, (COM (2004) 38). Thus far the role of SMEs in ETAP is underexposed in spite of the fact that SMEs play a crucial role in the European Economy. This report provides the ongoing work on ETAP with a better understanding of the barriers SMEs face when adopting environmental technologies. It also provides an analysis of specific measures for the promotion of environmental technologies in European SMEs.
