Establishing services enhancing the innovation management capacity of South West France SMEs

Objective

The project involves five partners of the Enterprise Europe Network South West France consortium which covers four regions (Aquitaine, Limousin, Midi-Pyrénées and Poitou-Charentes).
The general objective is to contribute to raise the competitiveness of SMEs from the 4 regions by offering support services in the area of innovation management. The project will also contribute to develop more efficient and more effective innovation processes and higher quality innovation management capacity assessment and support services.

The support will be delivered as service packages of 7 days to 2 groups of SMEs:

a) Beneficiaries of the SME Instrument of Horizon 2020: to enhance the probability of a successful exploitation of the innovation project results and lead to the sustainable growth of the beneficiary beyond the participation in Horizon 2020. The support service will pinpoint weaknesses in the innovation capacities of the beneficiary, select suitable coaches to address the identified weaknesses and monitor the coach-client relationship and to accompany the beneficiary through the SME instrument project
b) SMEs with significant innovation activities and a high potential for internationalisation: to enhance their innovation management capacities to be able to gain new international markets and leaderships. The support service will consist in an in-depth innovation assessment in order to develop and implement a tailored action plan to improve the SMEs capacity to manage innovation processes. The partners will use a dedicated assessment tool: IMP3rove.

The project will last 6 months and will provide 24 support service packages.
