Project ID: HPSE-CT-2002-00140
Funded under: FP5-HUMAN POTENTIAL

Abstract

The RICAFE project has now completed its activities. The project's main objective was to develop a comprehensive report on the questions of how the availability of risk capital contributes to the innovativeness of European firms and how current developments in the European models of provision of risk capital affect economic growth and shape policy options and priorities. The underlying objective of our work has been to provide an indepth empirical and conceptual assessment of the working of the markets for risk capital in Europe which may serve as informed and well-grounded blueprint for the ongoing implementation of effective policies to foster the growth of innovative, entrepreneurial firms and therefore to increase EU-wide innovative capacity.
