Funded under: FP6-SME

Abstract

This report contains the results of the "impact assessment for improving SME specific research schemes and measures to promote SME participation in the Framework Programme." The aim of this study is to conduct an impact analysis of past and present activities in order to set the scene for discussions on future Community programmes. The schemes analysed were co-operative research (i.e. CRAFT under FP4, COOP under FP5 and FP6), and collective research (COLL) and Economic and Technological Intelligence (ETI) under FP5 and FP6. COLL was a pilot scheme under FP5.
The study addresses the impact of projects in terms of the results and exploitation, and of the validity of the schemes. It has the following objectives:
- collect and analyse evidence on the impact of the SME specific research schemes and identify ways to improve their design and implementation in FP7
- collect and analyse evidence on the impact of measures to promote SME participation and identify ways to improve their design and implementation in FP7
This report contains an in-depth analysis both of the profiles of the participants and of the impacts of the SME-specific schemes and support actions.
The Appendix contains:
Appendix A The case studies
Appendix B The on-line survey
Appendix C Analysis of the participation in FP4, FP5 and FP6 SME-specific schemes
Appendix D The ETI satisfaction survey
Appendix E Definition of evaluation terms
