An information day on financing possibilities for Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) committed to innovation will take place in Frankfurt on 8 April 1994. The event is being organised by the Northern German Value Relay Centre, VDI/VDE - IT

This event will deal with the common problems faced by many SMEs which are typically oriented towards innovation but lack the financial resources to develop their ideas and potential.

In order to address these difficulties and to bring SMEs, innovation and research results closer together, which is one of the ideas behind the Value programme, several financing possibilities will be discussed at the Frankfurt event:
- VDI/VDE will make a presentation on the financing problems facing SMEs and introduce the Community's RTD support initiatives under the Fourth Framework Programme;
- Seed capital companies from Frankfurt and Berlin will describe venture capital possibilities, and the "Deutsche Ausgleichsbank" will present their partnership initiative.

Finally SMEs from Brauna, West Berlin and East Berlin will have the opportunity to present their experience of financing innovation projects.
