  • Ongoing call for proposals for the specific programme for the dissemination and optimization of research and technological development, including demonstration (INNOVATION), 1994-1998, concerning European networks and services

Abstract

The Commission of the European Communities is inviting proposals for actions under the specific programme for the dissemination and optimization of research and technological development, including demonstration, in the field of European networks and services. The purpose of this ongoing call is to invite proposals for the incorporation of the European dimension into the strategy of networks and services acting in technology diffusion and innovation promotion, allowing dissemination, beyond national frontiers, of the effective methods they have developed and applied. Proposals submitted should aim, at European level, at:

- Providing improved services to SMEs through the experimentation, and ensuing promotion, of cooperation between professions and service providers which have not yet developed a habit of working together;
- Spreading of good practices concerning successful national or regional support initiatives in the area of innovation and technology transfer for SMEs (e.g. temporary placement of researchers and engineers into SMEs and technology transfer organizations, organization of enterprise visits, etc.);
- Transnational cooperation between national or regional networks promoting innovation and technology transfer towards SMEs.
