efficiency and effectiveness of investments in research, development and innovation and by contributing to a better and
more efficient connection of actors along the innovation chain.

instrument in the context of a giving project is called 'Key account management'.
b) Increase the efficiency and effectiveness of innovation processes in small and medium sized enterprises with significant
