Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) - Research for the benefit of SMEs
The Project is funded by the Capacities programme "Research for the benefit of SMEs" of Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission (EC).
“The aim is to strengthen the 'innovation capacity' of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Europe and their contribution to the development of new technology based products and markets. The programme will help them outsource research, increase their research efforts, extend their networks, better exploit research results and acquire technological know how, bridging the gap between research and innovation.”
