French Mediterranean Support for Innovative SMEs

Project description

A boost for SMEs in the South of France

SMEs in the south of France are in for a big boost. The EU funded MED4INNO project will focus on the regions Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur, the Eastern part of Occitanie and Corsica as an extension of the ongoing project MED2EUROPE that is financed under the COSME programme for Enterprise Europe Network. MED4INNO will enhance the competitiveness of the most promising and innovative companies through the following two actions: Enhancing Innovation Management Capacity (EIMC) and the Key Account Management (KAM). The first will target SMEs with significant innovation activities and internationalisation potential. The second will target SMEs already benefiting from European grants and could further benefit from additional support.

Objective

MED4INNO Project proposal is an extension of the running MED2EUROPE Project financed under COSME Program for Enterprise Europe Network activity. The project covers the whole French Mediterranean area with 3 regions: Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur (PACA), Eastern part of Occitanie (ex LR) and Corsica (NUTS1 region FR7). The main objective of the project is to contribute to the increase of competitiveness of our most promising and innovative companies through 2 specific activities :
- Enhancing Innovation Management Capacity action (EIMC): for SMEs with significant innovation activities and/or with a high growth potential for international development
- Key Account Management action (KAM): for SMEs which are benefiting from European grants provided by the European Innovation Council (EIC Pilot) such as SME Instrument, Accelerator, Pathfinder FET or Fast Track to Innovation (FTI), which need in depth support to make them potential future European Champions.
