Research for SME associations at a glance

Funded under: FP7-SME


Research for SMEs associations aims at developing technical solutions to problems common to a large number of SMEs in specific industrial sectors or segments of the value chain through research that could not be addressed under Research for SMEs. Projects can, for example, aim to develop or conform to European norms and standards, and to meet regulatory requirements in areas such as health, safety and Environmental protection. Projects must be driven by the SME associations, which are given the opportunity to subcontract research to RTD performers in order to acquire the necessary technological knowledge for their members.
Projects must render clear exploitation potential and economic benefits for the SMEs members of the associations involved.
