SMEs Impact Assessment in

2007 – 2013 European Programmes

  • Less than 50% of industrial partners use the publicly funded applied research projects strategically;
  • Only about 22% of SMEs participating in EU research programmes;
  • Most academic engage with industry to further their research rather than to commercialise their knowledge;
  • Results are not exploited because projects were not designed for exploitation;
  • There is a strong relationship between internationalisation and innovation, but SMEs are not aware of internationalisation support programmes;
  • The information environment of (European) R&D programmes is unattractive and repelling to SMEs.

SME Instrument under Horizon 2020

The SME Instrument is targeted at all types of innovative SMEs showing a strong ambition to develop, grow and internationalise. It provides staged support covering the whole innovation cycle in 3 phases complemented by a mentoring and coaching service. Transition from one phase to the next will be seamless provided the SME project proves to be worth further support in a further evaluation. Each phase is open to new entrants.

3 Phases are foreseen:

  • Phase 1: Concept Feasibility assessment;
  • Phase 2: R&D and Demonstration work;
  • Phase 3: Commercialisation.
