The overall strategic aim of this proposal, in keeping with the EU policy, which attaches significant importance to the participation of SMEs in EU R&D projects, is to facilitate and foster the participation of SMEs from the Renewable Energy sector (RES) in the framework programme, with a clear focus on the upcoming FP7.
