Many small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Europe lack innovation and research capacities for the development of new technology based products and markets.
The program Research for the Benefit of SMEs aims to enable SMEs or SME associations to outsource research to providers of research services (‘RTD performers’) such as universities, research centres or other, more specialised SMEs.
