New call for proposals – RESEARCH FOR THE BENEFIT OF SMEs

The Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) bundles all research-related Community initiatives together. The specific programme Capacities aims to enhance research and innovation capacities throughout Europe and ensure their optimal use. Under this programme, the Research for the benefit of SMEs area has been designed 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, process or services.

Specifically, it is intended to give support to innovative SMEs to solve their technological problems or needs (common or complementary) with the ultimate goal of improving their competitiveness.

Research activities are funded in all fields of science and technology (bottom-up approach, without focusing on a predefined subject area) through two schemas that allow outsourcing to providers of research activities (universities, research centres, other SMEs, technology centres…).

These two schemas are: Research for SMEs and Research for SME associations:

Research projects for SMEs target mainly low to medium technology SMEs with little or no research capability, but also high-tech SMEs who need to outsource research to complement their core research capability. These projects must create new knowledge or produce results with clear potential to improve or develop new products, processes or services for the participating SMEs, and include a specific strategy to put them on the market.

Research projects for the benefit of SME associations are aimed at SME associations which act on behalf of their members to identify and address common technical problems. Projects may address larger topics (pre-normative research issues, technological adaptations related to new norms or standards, development of technical tools, etc.) with the aim of developing technical solutions to problems or needs common to a large number of SMEs in specific industrial sectors, and must include a specific strategy to ensure that the results are widely disseminated and implemented by the enterprises.

EC funding reaches 75% of research costs, 50% of the demonstration costs and 100% of the costs of management and other activities (up to 110% of the subcontracting).

The deadline for submitting proposals is December 6.
