WORKSHOP: SMEthod: Providing better support for SMEs
Updated: Jun 5, 2020
We are excited to invite you to attend the SMEthod workshop “Providing better support for SMEs”.
The event will be held during the ISPIM Virtual Innovation Conference, on the 10th of June from 9:10 to 10:10.
Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are the backbone of Europe's economy. They represent 99% of all businesses in the EU. In fact, according to the European Commission SMEs have created 85% of new jobs and provided two-thirds of the total private sector employment in the EU in the past 5 years. But despite their importance, SMEs face many challenges such as access to finance, a shortage of skilled labour, new technologies to cope with. So how can SMEs become more innovative and stay ahead of the competition?
SMEthod is helping the European Commission find some answers. It is helping to match SMEs with innovation potential to the type of support that will be the most effective. Join the workshop if you are an SME, a research agency or a researcher who wants to learn how to effectively fund the innovation capabilities of SMEs in a more efficient and socially desirable way.
