The project aims at boosting the participation of European SMEs in the largest research and innovation funding programme of the EU, HORIZON 2020, especially in the SME instrument, in FTI or FET open and as a second to enhance the innovation management capacities of high innovative SMEs.Implementation activities are organized in two work packages (WP):
Within the WP1 Key Account Management (KAM), the project will accompany beneficiaries of the SME instrument, FTI or FET in the implementation of their project ideas and initiate a coaching for them.
In WP 2 Enhancing Innovation Management Capacity process (EIMC), the project activities should result in significant higher innovation management capacities of SMEs (). Therefore, the innovation capacities and processes, innovation strategies and internal organizations of SMEs as well as their relations with innovation partners will have to be assessed. For this, the partners will apply proven assessment tools. Identified gaps and bottlenecks in the innovation management capacities will be discussed and measures and action plans to overcome them will be defined by the EEN consultants jointly with the SME.
KAMINO contains an assistance package for successful applicants in the SME instrument of H2020 and delivers assessments, advice and consultations to support SME to strengthen their innovation management capacities. Three EEN partners –ATI Kueste GmbH, Steinbeis-Forschungszentrum Technologiemanagement-Nordost and Technologiepark Warnemünde GmbH – work on the mentioned activities. The IHK zu Rostock– will formally act as coordinator for this action but will not implement any tasks.
Best suited enterprises will be acquired by various sources, provided by the project partners. For the KAM-process the potential candidates will be nominated by the European Commission through a special evaluation process. The consortium EEN M-V plans to perform 7 assessment service packages, both KAM and EIMC, in 2019.
