Q: What are the opportunities for small businesses in FP6?
A: Participation of small or medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in all thematic priorities and all instruments of FP6 is explicitly encouraged. The target is to spend 15% of the budget on SMEs. In addition, there are two special schemes dedicated to SMEs: Collective Research for industrial associations or groupings representing SMEs and Cooperative Research for SMEs with a potential to innovate but without sufficient own research capacities who can commission research performers to do research on their behalf.
