Periodic Reporting for period 1 - SEIMED-INNOSUP (SEIMED support to enhance the innovation management of SMEs)
Reporting period: 2014-07-01 to 2014-12-31
Both co-leaders in the Consortium, IVACE and INFO Murcia have started to support SME´s and guide them to implement effective processes in order to become more competitive and have a pro-active attitude towards the changing business environment, promoting the creation of a system that would continuously generate innovation and not only erratic and sporadic progress.
This service has been delivered by qualified innovation experts and has been linked to other support services of the Enterprise Europe Network SEIMED as well as other national and regional support services ensuring that the SMEs receive, and have the capability to benefit from the right form of support at the right time along their innovation cycles.
Furthermore, the EEN SEIMED has taken advantage of the implementation of these services to leverage potential innovation projects that could be financed by the SME Instrument EU Programme. The selection of companies for this action has been made bearing in mind the second objective of the call which has to do with supporting SME Instrument beneficiaries to succeed on bringing their innovation to the market. The EEN SEIMED has delivered Key Account Management services for the SME Instrument beneficiaries identifying weaknesses in their innovation capacities and offering suitable coaches to back up the global business innovation opportunity.
