Proposal of Consortium AURASME4 for the support services enhancing the innovation management capacity of SMEs within the Enterprise Europe Network Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes (EURORAA4)

Project description

Innovation services for French SMEs

Improving the innovation management capacity of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the different regions of the EU is essential for the innovation-driven competitiveness and sustainable growth of the European economy. The EU-funded AURASME4 project is part of the COSME EURORAA Consortium, based in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of France, which aims to support SMEs with a low capacity for innovation management. The project will implement two specific service packages targeting the needs of two different groups of companies. It will deliver key account management (KAM) services to SMEs that are beneficiaries of the H2020 EIC Pilot and enhancing innovation management capacity (EIMC) services to SMEs that demonstrate a strong potential to penetrate foreign markets.


AURASME4 project is a subset of COSME EURORAA Consortium, based in Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes region France.
Partners involved are Partner 1 (coordinator) and Partner 2. Partner 3 was not involved in this activity and is inactive since 2015 (amendment) and Partner 4 merged with Partner 1 (UTRO).
The general objective of this proposal is to bridge the gap of lacking innovation management capacities within international level. The work program is stricly focused on the objectives described in the call for proposal on the implementation of the two required service package : Key Account Management for beneficiaries of the SME bénéficiaires of the H2020 European Innovation Council (EIC) pilot and Enhancing Innovation Management Capacities.
The work programme describes the implementation of thes two packages'services, the detailed methodology and process for both service and their expected impact. A close link is ensured with the present EEN COSME related work program.
