The objective of this project is to provide innovation support services in 2019 to SMEs in the regions covered by the consortium members. These innovation support services will be differentiated for two groups of SMEs:
a) SMEs that have been selected as beneficiaries of the SME Instrument (Phase 1 or Phase 2), FTI or FET-Open funding schemes. For these companies, the consortium members will offer Key Account Management (KAM) services, which are accompanying services for the SMEs to identify weaknesses in their innovation capacities and suitable external coaches throughout their participation in the SME instrument.
b) SMEs that have high potential for growth and internationalisation but that need to improve their innovation management capacities. These companies will receive direct assessment services from the consortium members in order to detect barriers and develop and implement an action plan in order to enhance such capacities and overcome the detected barriers.
