Companies do not necessarily have the facilities, financial resources or human capital to run their research projects as they would like to. Thanks to the Marie Curie Actions, it is now possible for SMEs or companies to collaborate with academic research organisations, have access to their equipment, and integrate some of their highly skilled researchers within their research project.
Transferring cutting-edge Science and Technology from creative Academic groups to SMEs is a key element of successful business.
We know that well trained, entrepreneurially-minded and mobile researchers are essential to this successful collaboration. This is why the two Marie Curie actions (IAPP and ITN ) are promoting Business-Academic collaborations focusing on giving researchers the adequate skills and opportunities to contribute to SME and other business growth.
