  • Programme tofoster R&D in SMEs in member countries of EU andseveralassociated countries (Switzerland, Israel, Norway, Iceland, Turkey)

  • Near-marketresearch (twoyeartillproduct/serviceintroduction in themarket after project end)

  • Lead partner: R&D intensity >10% (R&D spending/turnoveror R&D employees/total employment)

  • Minimum: 2 partnersfrom 2 participating countries

  • Partners: Firm ofanysize; universities; publicresearchinstitute

  • Bottom-upapproach open to all technologiesand all industries

  • Project: <3 years; typicalsizeof EUR 0.8-2 million
