Q: What is "Research for the Benefit of SMEs" (Small and Medium-sized Enterprises)?
A: Small businesses (SMEs) are a main driver of innovation and the major employer within Europe. However, as it is often difficult for SMEs to fully fund their own research, it has long been a priority to provide support. This includes targeted research projects through part of the specific programme "Capacities". The Research Executive Agency (REA) will manage virtually all of the SME-dedicated part of the Capacities programme.
