"CIP" (2007 – 2013)
  • The CIP is:
  • the legal basis for Community actions which share the overarching objectives of enhancing competitiveness and innovation, complementing other major programmes covering cohesion activities, research, technological development and demonstration activities and lifelong learning. The CIP is composed of specific sub-programmes:
  • the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programme,
  • the ICT Policy Support Programme,
  • the Intelligent Energy- Europe Programme.
  • The Framework Programme should particularly address SMEs (micro, small and medium-sized enterprises) for market replication & transfer from research knowledge into products

"CIP" (2007 – 2013)

Who can participate?

  • European Free Trade Association (EFTA) countries which are members of the European Economic Area (EEA) – EU member states
  • accession countries and candidate countries benefiting from a pre-accession strategy
  • countries of the Western Balkans

Sub-programmes CIP

Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programme

  • The programme aims to help enterprises innovate by providing access to finance: sharing risks and reward with private equity investors and providing counter or co- guarantees to national guarantee schemes.
  • Through the programme, SMEs will also have simple, clear and efficient access to the EU via the business support networks
  • The conditions for innovation will be improved through innovation actions, including exchanges of best practices between Member States and evidence (innovation trendchart, innobarometer, innovation scoreboard).
  • CIP also includes new elements such as:
  • - a risk capital instrument for high growth and innovative companies;- "securitisation" of bank's SME loan portfolios;- enhanced role for innovation and business support networks;

Sub-programmes CIP

ICT Policy Support Programme

  • The ICT programme will stimulate the new converging markets for electronic networks, media content and digital technologies. It will test solutions to the bottlenecks that delay wide European deployment of electronic services. It will also support the modernisation of public sector services that will raise productivity and improve services.
  • Actions under the ICT-policy support programme will
  • underpin regulatory and research actions of the Commission to stimulate emerging digital economy;
  • provide a bridge between research investment and wide adoption, by providing a testing ground for pan-European electronic services in both the public and private sectors;
  • reinforce European cultural and linguistic identities by support for the production and distribution of European digital content;
  • assist the development of an open and inclusive European Information Society through stimulating innovative approaches to inclusion, quality of life and public services;

Sub-programmes CIP

Intelligent Energy-Europe Programme

  • The Intelligent Energy-Europe Programme will encourage the wider uptake of new and renewable energies and improve energy efficiency.
  • It includes actions to:
  • increase the uptake and demand for energy efficiency
  • to promote renewable energy sources and energy diversification, and
  • to stimulate the diversification of fuels and energy efficiency in transport.
  • The programme will also help to increase the level of investment in new and best performing technologies and bridge the gap between the successful demonstration of innovative technologies and their effective introduction to the market.
