Research for SMEs and research SME associations at a glance
The FP7 funding model
Research for SMEs and Research for SME Associations are two dedicated initiatives to strengthen the innovation capacities of SMEs by providing the support they need to outsource research critical to their core business. This brochure conveniently spells out how these initiatives are designed and explains in plain terms how the funding model works in practice. If your are an SME, this publication will aid you in your proposal preparation as you submit your application for funding. In addition to this guide, the European Commission's SME TechWeb - http//ec.europa.eu/research/sme-techweb - hosts... a user friendly spreadsheet that instantly calculates the EC's estimated contribution to your project. FP7 contains numerous opportunities open to innovative SMEs, and the EC's Directorate-General for Research wants to ensure that applying for funding is as easy and as painless as possible.
