ECOINNO2SME – Cooperation with Boost Biosystems
ECOINNO2SME – Cooperation with Boost BiosystemsThe overall aim of the project ECOINNO2SME is to reinforce the dissemination and exploitation of project results of small and medium sized companies (SMEs) in the areas ECO-Innovation in such a way that they are supported to bridge the gap between research and exploitation, hence expand their businesses and, accordingly, raise their competitiveness in the world markets. The project will evaluate finished projects of 5th and 6th Framework Programme of the EU with the involvement of SMEs. By defining sub-clusters of ECO-Innovation (within biotechnology, food, energy and environment) the project will follow an interdisciplinary approach in order to support exploitation and dissemination of results in these clusters.
ECOINNO2SME comprises Partners from 7 European countries (DE, EE, ES, HU, IT, SE, UK), all with long experiences in supporting SMEs in the dissemination and exploitation of research results.
Project duration is 2 years, the project started in February 2008 and will end in January 2010.
