Research Intensive High-Tech Smes In High-Risk Multidisciplinary ICT Research SMART 2009/0053

Funded under: FP7-ICT


The long term objective of this study is to stimulate European collaborative high-risk research around future and emerging technologies as a tool to activate the research of high-tech SMEs in a broader research dynamics involving academia and other research players, while keeping the SME in the driving role for strengthening and broadening its own science and technology basis and associated research capacity. Radically new concepts and research paradigms in areas with high technical risks could emerge from such an interaction. It will also bring university research in touch with pertinent topics and will give SME's the opportunity to explore opportunities beyond the short-term horizon imposed by business constraints and by in-house research in collaboration with outside partners beyond their original base.
