- KAPPA-Health: Key Success Factors for SME's participating in FP Projects (Coming soon)
It is assumed that for every successful Small-Medium Enterprise (SME) that participated in FP6 Life Sciences and Health (LSH) Priority and/or FP7 Health Theme projects, there are qualitative and quantitative key performance factors for success.
Knowing more about these success factors, and considering them when dealing with other fund providers, can demonstrate sustainable value and greatly increase the chances of receiving further funding. To determine and summarise these success factors, the KAPPA-Health project team has analysed over 200 Research Intensive SMEs.
Preliminary findings of this analysis will be presented and discussed, and the experiences of the successful SMEs shared, in this presentation.
The presentation will also provide an indication of to what extent such funding has suited the studied SMEs as well as guidelines for how inexperienced & new EU FP participants can build a successful EU project."
