Enhancing the innovation management capacity of SMEs through the Enterprise Europe Network in Macedonia (INNO EEN-M)

Objective

The general objective of the INNO EEN-M project is to increase the economic returns from innovation and enhanced innovation management capacities of the Macedonian SMEs through offering a standardised set of coaching and innovation management services while ensuring synergy with other services of the Enterprise Europe Network in Macedonia (EEN-M). The project aims to deliver 13 (thirteen) 7-day service packages: 10 package services will be
provided to SMEs with significant innovation activities and high potential for internationalization and 3 packages for the SME
instrument beneficiaries. As the national consortium is responsible for providing services at whole territory of the country, this
project will also cover the same area. The services will be delivered by three innovation experts/Key Account Managers
(KAM) from UKIM, member of EEN Macedonia. The INNO EEN-M project is highly related to the call for Enterprise Europe
Network – Horizon 2020 (2019) and will provide necessary tools, knowledge and experience to the EEN-M for
implementation of the specific activities in the context of innovation support. The activities within the project are organized in
two work packages: key account management (KAM) for the beneficiaries of the SME instrument, FTI and FET-Open and enhancing SME
innovation management capacities for innovating SME independently from a specific project. The selection of SMEs will be
done based on identified criteria whereas services will be delivered in line with the specific common format with the
packages. The team will use the IMP³rove tool as an assessment tool. The KAM will undertake needs analysis/coachcom
tool to support SMEs in selection of lead coach. The planned duration of both work packages is 12 months (2019). The
services, benefits and experiences from these activities will be part of internal evaluation. The beneficiaries of these activities
will be also used for identification of potential needs for training in the future.
