The project's general objectives are to directly support SME participation in FP6 by means of new, highly cost-efficient supporting tools. The project will target SMEs from all ACCs focusing on all sectors, although IT, biotechnology, energy and environmental sectors may be preferentially treated together with SMEs lead by women managers. In order to promote their participation in FP6 innovative e-consultancy services will be established that will directly assist SMEs in FP6 project development and proposal writing.
The proposed project has the following specific objectives:
- Providing practical information on the FP6 programme by means of developing links to pages dealing with related policies, actual FP6 calls and deadlines.
- Providing hands-on technical assistance to proposal preparation. Special emphasis will be given to SMEs willing to coordinate projects (particularly STREPs and SSAs) and to SMEs willing to take an active role in the development of IPs and in NoEs (as contractor).
