Design-driven Open Innovation Challenge for 200 SMEs

Project description

A closer look at SME innovation support initiatives

In today’s global and competitive economy, SMEs innovate to survive. A similar pressure has now fallen on public sector players who are scrambling to keep pace with SME innovation. The EU-funded 200SMEchallenge project will allow a selected set of innovation agencies to set up, implement and scientifically evaluate the impact and effectiveness of a novel SME innovation support initiative. Based on the results, the project will draft and disseminate a guide to a larger set of innovation agencies. The aim is to encourage these agencies to take up the piloted scheme, and scale it up to other domains. This will be in the format of an Innovation Challenge, based on guidelines developed by the INNOCHALLENGE project.
