The European Commission has published its call for proposals for Research for the benefit of SMEs. The document is part of the latest set of calls published under the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). Europe 2020, the Union's strategy to support growth and job creation, foresees the simple access and stronger involvement of SMEs in future EU research and innovation programmes, in particular those with high growth potential. To make this a reality, the call for 'Research for the benefit of SMEs' will strengthen European SMEs' capacity for innovation and their contribution to the development of new technology-based products and markets. Thanks to EU funding amounting to EUR 252.31 million, SMEs with little or no research capacity will more easily outsource research efforts to RTD performers, extend their networks, exploit research results and acquire technological know-how.To see the official call announcement, please consult: Participant Portal To see partnership requests for this call, please consult: CORDIS Partners Service
