SME success stories in the area of food agriculture and fisheries and biotechnology

Funded under: FP7

Abstract

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with a high research focus are the economic powerhouse behind scientific and technological developments in the 'Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, and Biotechnology' sectors. From 2007 to 2013, FP7 projects will give SMEs the great opportunity of working alongside scientists and researchers and gaining access to expertise and cutting-edge technologies and equipment. Aiming at promoting and fostering SMEs' participation in EU-funded projects, this brochure of success stories concentrates on past FP6 'Food Quality and Safety' projects to give concrete examples to other SME entrepreneurs and researchers of how rewarding EU research is.
