Raising Innovation Capacity for Innovative Companies from Latvia (2019)

Project description

Supporting research, development and innovation in Latvia

Latvia, a member of the European Union since 2004, is a small, dynamic and open economy. The EU-funded InnoSME-LV project aims at enhancing the country's innovation capacity and thus contributing to smart growth in the EU. To fulfil these goals, the project will focus on increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of investments in research, development and innovation and on improving the connection of actors along the innovation chain. The offered services will be delivered in the NUTS 1 region in Latvia by the Latvian Technological Centre, the EEN Latvia consortium partner.

Objective

The overall objective of the project is to contribute to smart growth in the European Union by increasing the 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. To achieve this objective the following measures are foreseen:
• To support SMEs, as the beneficiaries of the SME Instrument, FTI and FET-Open to identify bottlenecks to the creation of economic impact in companies benefiting from grants by Horizon2020's SME instrument and address these bottlenecks with the help of capable coaches;
• To increase the efficiency and effectiveness of innovation processes in small and medium sized enterprises with significant innovation activities that could potentially become beneficiaries of European support to research and innovation but would not have effective access to consulting services for innovation management.
In practice at least 9 (nine) specialised service packages will be delivered to SMEs to assist them in successful participation in the Horizon 2020 SME support instruments and increase their innovation management capacity beyond this programme.
The services addressed by the current proposal will be integrated in already existing Enterprise Europe Network services.
