Project description

SME innovation management capacity in Flanders

The EU-funded VEBIN SME 3.0 project will continue delivering the services of the Enterprise Europe Network in Flanders. The objective is to enhance SME innovation management capacity and ensure the key account management services for SME Instrument, Future and Emerging Technologies (FET), and Fast Track to Innovation (FTI) programmes on behalf of H2020 (EIC) for Flemish SME participants during 2019. According to the project, the Flemish VEBIN consortium will continue to provide these services and extend them to SMEs that will be beneficiaries of FTI and FET under H2020. These services will be integrated and managed into the regional innovation support system. This will ensure a high-quality service provision and an added European value. The project particularly reflects on smart signposting and the efficient use of existing tools.

Objective

Continuing the services of enhancing the innovation management capacity of SME's by the Enterprise Europe Network in Flanders and ensuring the KAM services for SMEi, FET and FTI on behalf of H2020 (EIC) for Flemish SME participants during 2019.

This project aims at continuing the services of EEN in Flanders with regard to the key account management
for the SME instrument under H2020 as entrusted by the European Commission to the Enterprise Europe network. It also
concerns the additional support services that EEN will deliver with regard to the enhancement of the innovation management
capacities of SMEs as decided under the mandate the EEN received from the H2020. The present proposal describes how the Flemish VEBIN consortium will continue to realise these services in the region of Flanders and extended also to SMEs that will be beneficiaries of FTI and FET under H2020, how these will be embedded in the regional innovation support system to the benefit of Flemish SMEs, how the consortium will manage the services and how feedback will be organised in order to ensure a high quality service provision and an added European value. It particularly reflects on the smart signposting of clients among all relevant support stakeholders and to the efficient use of existing tools. It also expresses the consortium willingness to cooperate whenever requested by the Commission or by EASME to participate in benchmarking exercises among the various participating consortia and to give feedback on the implementation of the services in the region of Flanders (Belgium). Particular attention will also be given to guarantee the synergies between the activities in this present proposal and the regular EEN services that the consortium is provinding in the region so as to realise fully the client journey and hub&spoke approach as laid down in the ToR of the COSME caal for the EEN with regard to the WP 2019.
