Innovation in SMEs | Innovation Management

Small- and  Medium- sized  Enterprises  (SMEs) that are EU-based or established in a country associated to Horizon 2020 (thus including SMEs from Western Balkan countries) are  encouraged  to participate across the whole Horizon 2020 programme. The objective of ‘Innovation in SMEs’ is to optimise the Research, Development & Innovation environment for SMEs, including through the establishment and facilitation of a range of support services, with the aim of strengthening the innovation capacity of SMEs and creating value on the market and/or into society, thus underpinning the Europe2020 strategy for smart, inclusive and sustainable growth. A range of actions contributes to building innovation management capacity for Small and Medium Enterprises. Innovation management capacity is the internal ability of companies to manage innovation processes from the generation of the idea to its profitability on the market. It is a process that encompasses the whole range of decisions, activities and measures in order to facilitate the transfer of an idea into the business value. This process can be applied for all kind of ideas, whether it is about a product, process or a service. The focus of the Innovation Management is to provide the set of measures and tools which will facilitate the inventors to respond to the challenges in the whole innovation cycle and to turn their ideas into successful innovations on the market.
