This proposal outlines a 15-month programme to establish a permanent FORUM bringing together European innovative AEROSPACE SMEs. These new alliances between aerospace SMEs will enhance the competitiveness of the European Aerospace industry as a whole. The European fifth framework programme will be highlighted as a key support to foster these alliances. The project will include a first set of two Alliance Workshops that will take place in connection with two matchmaking events targeting contacts between SMES and prime contractors. (which will be organised by the European Federation of high technology SMEs) These workshops will take place in Italy and France and be promoted in all the member States or Associated States. The programme will also provide on -line support thanks to a web site and individual following -up support to a hot line.
